Glitches
by boi9384728293 on 2020/08/06 11:46
I am a long time user with this app, I have been using it for years. But whenever I try to get money by watching adds, it will show me the add but not give me the 💰 so can you please fix that? 🙃🙃
Earning smoola is a joke
by CALMSmomma on 2020/08/06 05:25
I used to love this game and I played all the time. Watching videos to earn smoola was amazing and easy, but then it wouldn’t give me the smoola for watching the videos. Plus all of the extra activities you can do to earn the smoola is a joke, it says you have to earn 100% on the quizzes and I know I have without a doubt and it will give me some bull crap score like 67% (two quizzes in a row gave me the same score) even though one of them was a no brained quiz (find the foxes in each picture). They have numerous false advertisements saying things like “3 questions” and “only takes 90 seconds” when in reality it takes near 20 minutes to complete one quiz for it to tell you that you didn’t pass it. I’m highly disappointed with this game that used to be my favorite. I won’t be playing anymore.
it’s alright
by thatGurl6799😂 on 2020/08/05 01:24
i used to love this game, but i recently re-downloaded it and every time i watch an ad to earn coins, if doesn’t give them to me, other than that it’s great

Dear developer

Can u add I’m the purple guy song?
Good game! But it needs one important thing
by Lookatthisdude5987 on 2020/08/02 22:36
I have loved this game ever since I was a young child. But I’ve always wished I could create my own songbook (playlist), for better organization. I mean it’s nice the songs are in alphabetical order. But I just want to make my own songbooks (playlists). But over I love this game!
Why?
by DoodleDogFluffy on 2020/08/02 21:23
This app used to be super fun, but now everything costs outrageous amounts of the in-game currency. In addition, none of the quests would give me currency and neither would the ads I tried to watch. Do not download.
No free smule for ad watching
by Janzyellie on 2020/08/01 19:32
Tap to get 5 free smule points-watch ad- SORRY- you get nothing-RIP OFF- deserves zero stars
Fix the easy mode
by romagerda on 2020/08/01 11:07
I can’t play easy mode and pls put it back the way it was I hate it 😭😭😭😭😭😭 I barely can’t play easy mode thanks alot😭 for only iOS pls
Fix it
by Normal player 1 on 2020/07/31 22:58
It is a good game a good idea, but fix it. I did a survey to get in game money and it didn’t work. I watched 3 ads to get in game money and it didn’t work. I can only wonder what would happen if I spent real money.
No Free watch Ad Smoola’s
by savagegranny64 on 2020/07/30 18:00
Use to get 5 free Smoola for watching an AD Tried this several times and not receiving any smoola after AD is over. What is up with that?
R u serious?????
by Hi people:) on 2020/07/30 17:51
So I’ve always loved this game and I just got a new phone so I downloaded this. As you know if you’ve had the app, after the first song you get to pick a free song. After a song I went to look for it and it was gone! I didn’t make a huge deal out of it because it was free, but I was still upset to lose it. Then I managed to accumulate 51 smoola by doing most of the achievements and completing levels, but it took forever. Then, I went to go buy 2 of my favorite songs (the songs are way overpriced) and THE SAME THING HAPPENED! I was just looking for them hoping to gain some XP but they were gone! I am really upset because it took me forever to get the smoola. Deleting the app right now.
It got rid of the songs I purchased in app
by J4V_tw3Ety on 2020/07/30 09:16
I can’t play the tunes I want to play anymore cause the app decided to get rid of everything I paid smula for
“Free” smoola
by Frog_in_a_blender on 2020/07/29 20:09
I used to love this game but now I don’t, I watched an ad to get free smoola, I didn’t get any smoola. I thought it might be a glitch or something, so I watched another ad and no smoola, also the amount of ads you have to watch, it’s just not worth it.
⚠️FREE SMOOLA NEVER HONORED⚠️
by SailorVenus418 on 2020/07/29 18:12
Please fix this!!! Every time I watch an ad to gain 5 Smoola, it doesn’t give me any at all! I noticed I’m not the only one experiencing this massive issue. I’ve scrolled through all of the MOST CRITICAL reviews and I’ve counted FIFTY+ PEOPLE that are experiencing this major inconvenience! I love this game, but just for the many failed free Smoola attempts I have suffered, I strongly dislike it!!! I hope this gets fixed!!! - SailorVenus418
Watch ads for smoolas
by Mocesito on 2020/07/28 20:08
I’ve continuously watched ads to earn smoolas and I haven’t earn anything at all. Can you please fix this issue otherwise make the rest of the songs VIP exclusive.
Pls help
by Kalibar5 on 2020/07/28 14:04
I am not getting any coins whatsoever I have been doing this for a week pls help I have also tried to get free coins by watching adds still no coins help (;´༎ຶٹ༎ຶ`)
Key lags
by lannayyy on 2020/07/27 03:52
I love the app it’s just every time I play a lvl medium or hard and I get 3 or 4 keys it always lags. I press on it and it’s slow to process and it always say to slow or I pressed to much keys and it does it on all medium and hard lvls on any song but I don’t have a problem with the one or two keys
Just OK
by Texasmomof3yearold on 2020/07/25 21:48
Not a great game for young teens, & the songs are to long.
Scammers!
by mewtwo2.0 on 2020/07/25 13:30
Ur getting money from Advertising for nothing! Ive been watching ads but havent been receiving smoola!
What happened to this game
by Marylyn1980 on 2020/07/24 21:59
Seems each time I visit it gets worse why can’t I earn 5 Smula by watching a stupid ad ? I’ve tried and tried yet you idiots seem to get a kick out of pissing me and I’m sure many others off by changing the game fix it please.
Smoola issues
by Emerald The Panda on 2020/07/24 12:56
Every time I try and get free smoola, I watch the ad and nothing happens. I refresh and everything but still, nothing. Please fix this! Magic piano is really cool but if free smoola actually worked It would be a lot better!
Confused and annoyed, please fix this
by Ok this name couldnt be taken on 2020/07/22 22:10
PLEASE READ THIS! All the songs are soooo expensive! I wish that I could earn more Smoola for playing song or achieving goals. Or, maybe things could be cheaper... Also the game said I could earn 5 Smoola for watching an ad so I watched it and I never got any Smoola Why? I have watched soo many ads by now🤷🏼‍♀️🙍🏼‍♀️🙎🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️😤
scam
by Lstar- on 2020/07/21 21:30
I’ve watched DOZENS of ads and it never gives me my smoola. FIX IT
Mobile gamer
by mellerssssssss on 2020/07/21 03:36
I keep watching videos to get more smoola, however, I’m not getting any smoola. Very annoying to only get to play the same songs over and over.
Amazing Game: Two Problems Though
by I♥️🎶 on 2020/07/21 00:41
I got this game when I started my piano lessons. I really liked it and it was a good reminder to practice my real piano. Now I’m really good on the real piano, and I’m good at Magic Piano too. I love how you can compose your own songs, I love the songs, I love the app. But there’s two little flaws that really annoy me. First of all, when I play the Daily Challenge, (which is really fun) I never even get close to the other people. Their always-and I mean always, at least two thousand points ahead of me. I really want to see that changed. The second thing is, I have a song in my songbook, and then the next week comes and it says it’s no longer in my songbook. What?! Other than those two flaws I love this game. Change those two things and this game would be the best.
My songs are GONE!
by Calove77 on 2020/07/20 23:45
I have collected many songs over the years that I “bought” by watching your videos and now a third of them are gone! They were there 3 months ago; what happened them? Also, I’ve been watching videos to “earn” Smoola and not getting anything! About done with this app!
Smoola problems and To many ads but Great.
by ...."................ on 2020/07/20 20:40
I downloaded this game on my iPad ,Every time I play a song and leave a song always a ad pops up and when I watch a ad I don’t get smoola. Well I do think this game has great songs and I can make my own songs. The vip is really stupid and my favorite songs is vip and half of the song book is vip ,this is’t fair.well I won’t spend money just to be vip.
Coins
by everest438 on 2020/07/20 16:15
Not good. I earned coins and buy songs but they disappear from wherever they are and I have to pay for them again. Also after watching a video for free coins I never get them. Overall the music is enjoyable.
Free smoola is a scam
by Toadette is me on 2020/07/20 01:47
Ok so like, I've tried to watch an ad for 5 free smoola, and it's just a scam and you guys get paid and we get scammed.

Soo many ads
by Starscream probably on 2020/07/19 08:58
The game is overall great but the ads are just way too much it sticks and kind of makes me wanna deleted the game
when I try to get 5 smoola by watching an ad it doesn’t give me any
by TrajicToad on 2020/07/18 20:05
so? where is my smoola? i click free on 5 smoola by watching ad, and when the ad is done and I close it... I DO NOT SEE MY FRICKIN’ SMOOLA!!!!!!!!!!!! fix it. thank you.
No Smule for watching ads
by Kris~~~~~kris on 2020/07/18 18:16
I love this app and love playing songs, but everytime I watch the video ads for 5 free smule, it never gives me the coins. This makes it extremely hard to unlock new songs, and it’s a waste of time watching ads. If this bug was fixed, this app would be great!
Ads don’t work
by CJM0 on 2020/07/18 17:21
The game works great. Just one problem. Anytime I watch an add for five smoola it won’t give me the smoola. Please fix this. I would enjoy the app more if you did.
lot of problems
by HarryPotterFanatic0622 on 2020/07/18 17:17
i've had this app for years but what bugs me now is that whenever i want to get a new song, i have the option of watching an ad. so i do, because there's really no other better way to get money, but after i get done with the ad it gives me nothing, no matter how many ads i watch. also sometimes when i start to play a song, no sound comes out. my volume was all the way up, and not on silent. i reloaded the app and it did the same thing. this app used to be so much better.
Usually love this app
by Sumisumisumisumisum on 2020/07/18 07:44
I can’t update my profile picture without the app closing. I’ve tried turning/powering off/updating my iPhone but it doesn’t fix this issue.
More ads, no smoola
by yftcucucjffuxuc on 2020/07/17 05:21
I watched about 5 ads to get 5 smoola but every time I check my smoola amount, it still stays at the same number. And some of the ads are a bit scary. Like “Zombie war” is the only ad I see over and over again more than once. You can just call me Happy_Hungry.
4 stars but..
by iiGiulsii on 2020/07/16 21:58
It’s okay.. but the only thing I would change is the ad/ Smoola earning thing.. it’s just annoying.. I would watch videos to get the song I want and I wouldn’t earn ANYTHING. Please change that
Smoola
by cooorosh on 2020/07/16 15:26
I’m a musician and I love this game, but give more smoola , AT LEAST FIX videos for smoola option , I watch ads but it won’t give 5 smoola !! Please fix it
Smule if you ever see this please read!
by Msiklyen on 2020/07/16 03:05
I love this app so much it is my favorite game there is none like it and the music is so beautiful … I really hope you always keep this app in the AppStore… it makes me so happy to play it every day and it calms me down and it gives me good eye to hand coordination. I just wanted to say thank you so much for creating this app it’s genius I love it so much and I would be so devastated if it ever left the AppStore I hope kids can play this game after I die haha. I’m only so young now but it’s so amazing and it has helped me through so much and if I had the choice to play one game for the rest of my life it would be this one. Thank you Smule.…
Scam
by literly riged on 2020/07/15 23:17
Ive watched many videos and done quizzes and still haven't gotten my smula
Awesome game!
by Dancer 10000000 on 2020/07/15 22:14
I love this game so much! There is a flaw here and there but I was wondering when you delete the app does it delete you account? That all! Wonderful GAME!!!
Terrible coin problem
by Your Big Fat Mama Llama on 2020/07/14 23:26
Very fun game but the free video to get free coins never works and getting coins in general is way too hard and songs you like cost quite a bit kinda ruined the game for me 😕
Meh
by Ryfdtdhzhcfhd on 2020/07/14 17:54
What really bothers me about this app is that u put so mich time into making a piece and then people can copy it, change a single note, and repost it as their own.
Why is everyone so poor
by dragonboy395 on 2020/07/13 19:43
It is way too hard too get smoola. A whole bunch of levels is only one smoola. And when you try to get more nothing works. And there is a big ad problem. So I turn on airplane mode and I can’t play me favorite song because smule didn’t make it. And I cannot play the song I made.
Smile is a frat game but fixes have to be in place
by Supersonic1991 on 2020/07/13 14:41
Smile is a great game to play if you are ever feeling bored. Play some of your favorite songs to your heart’s content as you relive your favorite memories. The ad system does not reward you 5 smoola though, so that has to be fixed. All in all, it’s a fun app, so give it a try sometime.
Awful game. Only wants money.
by RMGRaccoonlol on 2020/07/13 10:25
I love this game, I’ve played it ever since roughly 9 years. Recently I got back into it with a free one week VIP trial. I loved playing over 300 classical pieces. Now that my trial is over, I cannot do anything. I can’t play a single song on the “my songs” list. I remember the VIP used to be $1.99 a week, and $3.99 a month. Now it’s $9.99 for ONE WEEK and $19.99 FOR ONE MONTH. That’s a 500% markup. There was no reason for it to be that high. The game without VIP offers nothing because every song costs smoola that is incredibly difficult to get. Awful game with greedy developers.
Good but some problems
by Tamyia08 on 2020/07/12 21:21
I’ve been playing this game fro a while now and I’ve been stuck on the same level! I always try and level up but I run out of free songs and it just takes way to long. So I suggest that they add more free songs for people to play and making it easier to level up.
Good but not amazing (AT ALL)
by MacLee2029 on 2020/07/12 17:03
When I first got the game I picked a song and have gotten Farley better but I was getting tired of all the same songs and adds my favorites were into the unknown and someone you loved but I was getting tired of them so I wanted new songs but almost all of them were VIP or cost smoola so I did not mind that.....(at first)so I went to get free smoola I watched an because because I don’t like spending money on games and I didn’t get anything so I tried it again to if it was a glitch and it still didn’t work...then after working so hard by leveling up and doing achievements I finally had enough to get a new song I was so exited so I surched my favorite song and it came up but....it sounded like CRAP!!!i was so sad because I spent so much time trying to level up and do that stuff just for nothing I would give more stars like a 3 but the add does not work it would make this review ALOT better than it it I highly would not recommend this app I mean I still have it just Incase of like an update or something where the add thing does work Sorry if this is just for nothing and it all doesn’t bother you and this was a wast of time But this is also for the developers to fix these problem Btw the song I got was 10,000 hours I think I might of picked the wrong one but you still need to title then differently so you can see what it is like the song a part of it etc Bye I hope you have a better time with this app if you do get it....
Won’t give you the Smoula (coins)
by Lalav19 on 2020/07/12 11:53
One of the options is to watch a video to earn smoula, the coins you need to buy additional songs. Even after watching the videos, you don’t earn them like it says you can. I tried restarting and then redownloading the app.
It doesn’t let you watch videos to get smoola
by Maegan Weinrich on 2020/07/11 23:49
I love this game so much, but when I had it on iPad, I could watch a video and get free coins. Now I play on my iPod and every time I watch a video to get coins, I don’t get any after watching the video. It’s really annoying.
Ok game but many issues
by KittyPuppyLover185 on 2020/07/11 12:09
Ok so the overall game I think is good it has a good concept but there are a lot of issues! First, when you play a song over 5 times, you can’t play it unless you buy the VIP pass! So basically you’re paying 520 dollars A YEAR to even play one level on this game! Second, whenever I press, ‘watch an ad for 5 free somoola’, I watch the whole ad but it never gives me the money!! It’s extremely frustrating! Third, the ads. They’re out of control! You get ads for like EVERYTHING!! I hope the developers read this because you need to fix your app! There are so many issues and it’s really frustrating!,
No free smoola?
by I don't like crashes on 2020/07/11 04:53
I watched at least six of the ads that gives 5 free smoola each, but didn’t receive any of it. I like this app and love the songs, but I can’t get more if the ads aren’t giving the smoola
Shameful!!
by chatnoiresque on 2020/07/11 02:51
Ruined a great game with excessive ads. And $10/week subscription to get rid of them? That’s insanely expensive for what you get. What a shame.
I use to like this game but.....
by giggggggggggztyjztjiuey on 2020/07/10 13:37
Yet i kinda just got sick of this game what would make it better is that make daily routines soooo ya do not no wat Else to write
Too many ads!
by en301 on 2020/07/09 22:51
Used to love this game back in middle school, and even if i ran out of songs to play i could easily get more by watching ads. Now several years later, there are more ads than ever, and the 5 coins per ad don’t even work anymore! Overall it’s still a good game, I really like the variety of songs we can pick and the ability to create our own; but if these issues were fixed, the game could be so much more enjoyable!
I hate it. It is impossible to cancel a subscription.
by tinselqt on 2020/07/08 21:34
I want to cancel my subscription but it is impossible
Nice app but to many ads.
by jfhdisevsjsvd on 2020/07/08 17:27
I played this game a lot every since I got it. But every time I’m done playing a song an ad pops up. It’s getting to the point where it’s really annoying to see fake ads advertising their apps.
Can’t earn coins
by Fhooudh on 2020/07/08 17:05
I have watched ads to earn 5 coins each and they never get added to my account. I should have 30 coins by now from watching those videos.
it used to be fun. :/
by wolfie😑 on 2020/07/08 13:34
i used to play this game a lot in 2018 and when i watched ads to get free smoola, it worked. but now when i try to watch ads for 5 smoola now, i get nothing. it doesn’t show up. so now it’s not fun to play anymore because i keep having to play the same songs over and over or watching a preview and fake playing it there. so please fix this because i won’t be playing this for a while if this doesn’t get fixed :/
The cost of this app has gone up over 400%
by Palo73$45 on 2020/07/08 03:29
I really enjoy this app but I can’t afford it! When I first downloaded it a few years back it cost $7.99 per month. Now you are charging $9.99 per week!!! That’s over a 400% increase, but the app is about the same as it was several years ago. As much as I enjoy the app, I feel The cost is WAY too high! And playing without the all access pass is extremely frustrating! If the cost had gone to $9.99 per month I would have given it 5 stars, but Not at this price! What are you-big pharma?
Great Music! Just One Problem...
by Luna Lovegood 3.0 on 2020/07/07 23:37
I love this game and I probably always will. The music is beautiful, and it’s so easy to play. I only have one complaint. THE REWARD SYSTEM. You only get one or two coins for leveling up once, and when you reach the higher levels, that can get VERY annoying. And, when I try to look into the ads and stuff for more coins, most of them never work! So in conclusion, great game, but it makes it kind of hard to actually UNLOCK the songs.

Smoola
by yfuvystdyxt on 2020/07/07 05:38
I really feel like smoola is pretty useless. I feel like if someone wanted to play a song to experience what it’ll sound like, they should be able to do it. Also when I tried to get smoola by watching an ad, it didn’t give me the smoola. I should have probably a hundred smoola by now.
fixer
by Mjtwag on 2020/07/06 17:47
ok this game is so much fun but what i don’t really like about this game is that every time you mess up i brings you down bc there is nothing helping you get better at the song or just the game but this game to me would be so much better if you made it where if you mess up it would encourage you to get better.
Not rewarding enough
by 2JorDEN6 on 2020/07/06 17:21
I have been using this app for years now, and I slowly started to realize that the rewards the game gives you is not enough, we have to constantly play the same 10 songs over and over again to get a reward of “1” or even “2” smoola. The prices for other songs could cost from 25 to 75 smoola.
It’s...It’s...
by ryanxia The best on 2020/07/06 03:59
It’s okay. I started 5 days ago, and I’m on level 5. I like it, but here’s some very important down-downs. 1. It’s a little boring because I don’t like tapping with all (or even some) of my hands (only 2 fingers and 1). I tap fast so I can just skip the levels. 2. Ads! Ads! Ads!!!!!! I hate them, and that’s why I gave it a 3 star rating. Can somebody erase the part of that we have to tap 3-4 fingers.
Okay but unnecessary notes

I got this app bc i don’t have a piano and i wanted to play music with guidance. and it gave me a free song as a reward, me being a Hamilfan, I chose Burn, there were unnecessary single notes placed that slowed me down and ruined the song for me. it helped bc i know the lyrics but pausing because the one notes were slowing me down threw me off course and i didn’t enjoy it. would recommend a real piano over this

Not worth the cost.
No sound

Half the time sound doesn’t work for songs yet always does for the ads
Problem with Ads
by HappyStiches on 2020/07/05 08:46
I absolutely love this app but see now I’m slightly getting discombobulated in a sideways sort of way...I am not happy with all the ads and now I’ve watched 13 videos and I’m NOT getting my smoola and I hope this mishap will be fixed ... when it is I will gladly give a higher rating.update: well I used to absolutely love this game but now it has ads popping up constantly . It’s irritating and I’m thinking about just deleting the game all together if it doesn’t get fixed.

Smoola and ad problems
by dabbing_gnome on 2020/07/04 11:24
Whenever I watch an ad it never gives me any smoola and it really pisses me off. Please fix this.
Glitches
by A Person who hates the app on 2020/07/04 05:48
This is not an app to learn the piano. Also the ads to get in game currency are bugged
Great, great game!
by lawandgrace1 on 2020/07/03 21:12
Honestly. I don’t see why anybody would hate this app, it has a cool piano playing technique, I like all the songs that they have, and I like how you can select a difficulty that you could practice on. When I first saw this app I was so excited to get it. I really got so good! I’ve been practicing everyday and got better and better. So yeah, a few mess-ups though, (I mean on my playing not the game 🤪😂) but I can see what everybody means.
Booooo
by Billybekah on 2020/07/03 16:53
I used to love it when my sisters let me play this game. But when I downloaded the app on my own phone, IT WONT LOAD it just shows the logo. I watched my sister playing it just fine but it STINKING WONT LOAD.
Ad glitch

Ad glitch
No Smoola from videos
by Brian Orozco on 2020/07/03 00:34
I really like this app but now whenever I watch an ad that’s supposed to give me five Smoolas, I don’t get any. It worked before but for some reason not now. Please fix it!🙏🏼
Please read this before getting!!!!
by Gazoo03 on 2020/07/02 14:35
So, I have had Magic Piano for a little over a year, and there has never, EVER even been 1 update. Don’t get me wrong, the concept and how you play the game is great, but... it has many flaws. I’ll start by making a list. 1. The app will just randomly close out. I’ll be playing a song, and the app will just close and take me back to m home screen with all of my other apps! This is very annoying, and it ill not save your score or progress of it does that. I have since deleted the app because of my frustration with it. 2. If you would like to buy a song, then you need something called “Smoola.” These are what the coins are called in the app. It is extremely hard to get these coins, and you can only get 1 coin when you pass a level or get an “achievement.” 3. When you pass a level, you also get 1-3 new songs, but then to pass the rest of the level, you will need to replay the songs that you already have over and over again. This gets really annoying, because i downloaded the app for fun, and not to have to sign up as a VIP to unlock all of the songs. 4. One more thing about the songs and when you play them, there will most times be an add before you can enjoy playing the piano. Even if it’s a song that you already have in your library, that gets annoying, too. Personally, I would never really use the app ever again if these glitches and too many adds and not fun to play app never has an update again. They need to fix these issues ASAP, so that they will not detour people from getting this app
Fun but a few bugs
by Djkawaiicat on 2020/07/01 20:01
Hi, I’ve played the game for a few years now, but I recently got a new phone. If you watch an add it’s supposed to give you in game currency called smog, but when I watch an add, it glitches and I don’t get my smoola. Otherwise, it’s a pretty fun game, but don’t play for more than 15 minutes at a time, or else your wrist might cramp.
fix it
by Spikeybeans on 2020/06/30 20:01
girl yall gotta fix the smule thing cuz it said i would get 10 smules if i went on facebook and they gave me one. also based on other reviews they sound mad greedy tryna get ur $$ and if you dont pay them a lot of money then you get an ad every song. it used to be the hype but now its just like irrelevant whatever
This is fun but...
by jeffymc potato on 2020/06/30 19:44
So the game itself is really fun and I do highly suggest it but some songs cost smoola, the app currency. You can get some by watching ads. The only problem is that I’ll go to watch an ad and it won’t. Give. Me. Anything. I just waste my time for something I won’t get!😡 it’s really dumb and I want this fixed ASAP because I can’t get any smoola and the worst part is after watching so many ads it says “wait until tomorrow to watch more ads.” It sometimes does work but that’s very rare. I WANT THIS FIXED!😡😡😡😡😡
ADS
by sjsudjje$jdjejd on 2020/06/30 00:16
Whenever I watch ads to get smula it almost never actually works please fix and 5 stars will be given because this is actually a fun game that I enjoy
Everything Good Costs Smoola
by The Disney Geek on 2020/06/29 21:16
While I have enjoyed this game ever since I had an iPod in elementary school(I’m now 17), The one problem I have is that at this point, I’ve done all of the songs that are free, and I have barely any smoola. Even when I watch a video, I get only one extra smoola. But overall i love this app!
My song is gone
by lupe rosa on 2020/06/28 17:31
I bought the song Bohemian Rapsody for 25 smula and I did get to play it but then the next day I went on the app and the song was gone, I wasted 25 smula only for the song to be gone the next day. How disappointing
Pls fix
by Smg2181 on 2020/06/28 12:25
Every time I see an ad to get 5 Smoola it doesn’t give me anything.
Price Gouge
by davbran on 2020/06/27 06:10
$10 a week? Yeah sorry $520 a year is out of my price range and you should be ashamed of yourself. I keep hoping Apple will trim the weeds in the Garden.
Needs fixing
by Ranky Doodle on 2020/06/27 01:59
When I watch ads, I did not get Smoolas. It worked before, but it stopped working. Please fix it. I have to abandon the game because of that reason. And worst of all, everytime you level up, you only earn 1 Smoola. Like, what is this? I did all of that hard work just to get 1 Smoola? That’s not enough. I’d say at least 10 Smoolas is enough.
Soooo frustrating
by a crazy cat lover🐱🦁 on 2020/06/26 21:30
Ok so I had this app when I was much younger and LOVED it. But as I got older I outgrew it and deleted it. I wanted to try playing a song on piano so I redownloaded it but all my progress that I spent years of working on was gone. It was a bit sad but I mean I did this to myself by deleting it. I only need 9 more smoola or whatever to play the song I wanted (the sole reason I redownloaded it!!!) and tried watching two ads to get 10. But of course it didn’t work. I don’t know why I thought the horrible ad system would’ve improved over the years. I guess this is why I deleted it. Wouldn’t recommend if your not into cheesy princess songs or nursery rhymes cuz it’s not like your getting anything else.
Smoola not working again
by Emmatorpederson on 2020/06/26 15:56
You probably haven’t figured out the bugs yet regarding the ads but seriously I’m not getting my money for the ads watched.
READ ME
by 나는 복숭 아를 좋아해 on 2020/06/26 04:09
Ok this is good really good you should use it BUT the thing is every time you try to play a song an ad pops up literally it’s really annoying and also when you finish the song another app comes up all the ads that comes up are all GAME ads dude this is a piano playing app I know you want money to advertise something but please reduce them ADS
Fun but Smoola issues
by hsob37 on 2020/06/26 03:26
I love this game and it is fun, but it is extremely hard to get smoolas and all the songs are too expensive. The lowest price for a song is 25 Smoola, but when you level up you on,y get 1 Smoola, and it takes awhile to level up. I tried watching a bunch of ads to get five free Smoola per ad, but when I watched the ad, it didn’t give me any Smoola. I ended up watching five or six ads and I got nothing. Since it is so hard to get smoolas you end up playing the same songs and it gets boring... I really hope they fix this issue.
I liked the app
by Mac1812tanker on 2020/06/25 06:37
I really enjoyed the app and thought it was fun. The only downside is the smoola, it was easy enough to get it from the videos. However, the videos and the action things seemed to stop working for me. I watch a video and no longer receive the 5 smoola I complete actions and don’t receive the smoola. I was wondering if the developers had done something and would fix it soon but I haven’t seen any updates.
LOVE Composer Mode, but...
by Person 1231 on 2020/06/25 05:24
I have had this app for 9 years and have seen it go through many changes. Who remembers when the keys were all green and the upper right “side words” were all negative? Beside the point, composer mode is absolutely my favorite addition yet. I have been composing since 2016 and here is what I have to say: 1. There should be a “follow” system to support composers you like, 2. Composers should receive some amount of coins from the purchases or likes of their players, 3. And the note system on composer is a bit buggy (ie. Adding or subtracting bars removes two at a time, pressing many notes on the key itself sometimes adds two of the same note, and it is currently not possible to publish a composition with tags on it). Some if these issues are new, some have been there from the start. While these are just some suggested improvements, I cannot express with words how much I enjoy this game. It dispels all anxiety and I look forward to continue playing for years to come.
Lots of bugs
by 29105627 on 2020/06/23 22:08
This app is fun, but all the ads almost make it not worth it. Also earning smule is annoying because you watch all the videos and it doesn’t even give you the reward.
No smile when watch ad
by Lalalalalalllaa on 2020/06/23 17:33
I love this game but I don’t ever get smule coins when I watch the ads to get them I hate it fix it now!!!!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
Loving it, just one problem...
by iiStar_Strxckxx on 2019/07/05 17:00
Ok so I’m really loving this game, but there is just one problem that is just so annyoying. So I was just finishing up medium level on Colors by Halsey, and then I decided to try hard, so all was well the first few seconds, UNTIL... this popped up, “Why is magic piano paused?? Go to settings and turn off multitasking so your screen doesn’t slide off to another app! “ And so I went to setting and went to general, Like is showed in the picture, and I couldn’t find it! It wasn’t there! So I went back to magic piano to see the picture, and it was the exact thing I did! I couldn’t find “ MULTITASKING” So I just went back to the song, thinking it was just a one - time thing, and the NEXT TIME I press 4 finger it pops up again! It was so annoying! So I ignored it. And then a few peachy notes later it pops up again! Ughh it was so annoying! And so I finishing the song, and because of the pop up thing, I only got 2 stars!! But other than that, this game is awesome! Now I know that this review is just going to be one of the other reviews, lost in the ocean of reviews, but PLEEEEAAASE! Try to fix this.
Smoola and ad problems
by gamerwskills on 2019/08/11 19:28
I’ve had this app for at least 6 years and I loved playing it when I first downloaded it. I don’t really mind all the changes that made the app look different, but I’m having problems that I never had in the past. When I played this app on my iPad, I watched videos to get at least 75 smoola and it worked. Then recently when I started to do it again, it worked but then I would get ads that didn’t get me any smoola. When I first started having this problem, I thought that there might be a glitch in the app. So I tried to buy a song from the Songbook because I thought I would get the song I wanted even though I didn’t have the right amount of smoola. But when I tapped on the song to buy it, it said that I didn’t have the right amount even though I watched videos to earn smoola. Sometimes I would wait to get more smoola and then when I press the button to earn 5 smoola, it would say there I should come back later to watch more videos. Then I go to use another app to occupy myself. Then when I go back to the app, I would press the same button again, but then I would get an ad that doesn’t get me any smoola. I also wish that I wouldn’t have to watch videos after playing songs and I wouldn’t have to watch videos to play free songs even though I already played the song I want to play again.
I used to love it...
by @miggysbiggestfan on 2017/12/01 21:09
So I've had this app probably since I was 15 when I first got my iPhone 6, and it was addicting up until now. Okay so last night every single song I have showed 3 stars next to each level of difficulty that I have played at, and just a few minutes ago when I went to open the app, ALL of my songs showed no stars highlighted, no scores, no nothing. Like I just bought them or composed them and haven't even started playing them yet. I am really angry. 😡😡 Also there are just too many ads. 👎🏻 Every ten seconds after I finish a song, a stupid ad pops up about some coloring book or food game and it's really annoying. 😤 Also I really hate how the majority of everyone's favorite songs nowadays can't be played unless you have a VIP membership accessibility. It's ridiculous. I feel that VIP membership to play a song on Magic Piano should be banned, because you know, there are not very many VIP members in the world. I'm seriously thinking about deleting this app from my phone for permanent. I've not only had to deal with the troubles I stated above, but I've also had to deal with the app freezing up, songs I compose that won't let me publish no matter what I do, and Daily Challenge songs taking decades to load and then refreshing the app only for it to crash every time I reopen it. It's getting really frustrating and I can't take it any longer. 🚫
Not like I remember
by PennePastaCat on 2019/07/28 18:58
I had this app a couple years ago and absolutely loved it. It was challenging to play, since I only had a tiny device to play it on, but it was great. I actually felt like I was making progress with each song and difficulty I completed. I fell out of touch with the app in college and recently decided to redownload it because of how fun I remembered it being. I am disappointed with what Ive found. It feels like the only way to actually progress and earn coins for new songs is to spend money. It’s either that, or play the same few songs over and over again, making little progress each time. I could play a song on the hardest level without missing a single note, and still barely progress to higher levels. Not to mention the plethora of ads. I fully understand that when you play a game for free to expect a few ads here and there, but no other free app I’ve ever used has shoved so many ads in my face. I was able to tolerate it for a while, because the game itself is loads of fun, but my patience has worn out and I’ve deleted the app from my devices. It’s a shame because I absolutely adore the gameplay and ability to compose my own songs. I got this app to help relax when I have an idle moment between school and work, but it’s proven to be more stressful dealing with the above issues than it’s worth. It’s absolute waste of time, money, and effort.
Fun to play, but not my style
by FoxeGamer01 on 2019/02/28 05:04
I’ve downloaded this app on and off lately, for separate reasons. First of all, I hate all of these ads! I mean, sometimes every time you enter a different song, the same ad pops up. So on top of having to watch these stupid ads for different games, it’s the same one over and over and over. It’s so annoying that I’ve purposely turned off my Wi-Fi just to get rid of ads. It’s ridiculous! Second of all, I hate that the achievements give you only one or two coins! I mean, about eighty percent of the songs cost twenty five coins! And you work so hard on a single achievement to only get one coin? It’s stupid! Last but not least, there’s the case of this VIP stuff! I mean, half the songs in the entire app is in the VIP section! And almost all of my favorite songs are in the VIP section! It’s just not fair. Why should we spend our money on some stupid things like VIP memberships when eventually we’re gonna delete the game for all these reasons! Basically what this game- and all games in fact- is saying is that instead of using money to buy exciting things, we’re using it for an online item that isn’t real. It’s ridiculous, it’s stupid, and it’s a waste of money. Even though I somewhat enjoyed the game, all of these things are making my interests go down! Fix these things!
Went downhill
by lencofam on 2017/12/11 05:07
I used to have this app as a very young child, and the only reason why I deleted it was because I got frustrated at its difficulty. Just recently, the game crossed my mind and I decided to re-download it and give it another go. Because I’ve gotten a lot better at video games over the years, the difficulty of the game was no longer a problem. There, were, however, new problems with the game that I didn’t expect to encounter. For starters, the game has WAY to many ads. I can’t play a single song, not even a short one like Happy Birthday, without being forced to watch a stupid, boring video that I don’t care about. I got this game because I remembered how fun it was, but it’s kind of hard to have fun when 90% of the game is just you watching ads for other games. Second of all, this game is basically begging you for money at this point. The fact that some of the songs are only available to VIP users is just stupid. Do they really expect us to spend actual money on a stupid piano game that we have on our phones? Besides from that, every achievement you can accomplish in the game (leveling up, getting new songs, etc.) can be bought with just a few bucks. The fact that literally everything in this game has been put up for sale is terrible. Well, that’s my review
$mule.. it’s all about the $$$
by Samiam1023 on 2018/04/13 00:43
I loved this game for a long time but over the last year or more the ads are ridiculous and every time before you start a song .. there’s an ad.. finish a song... another ad... select another song.. an ad.. and on and on. I paid for a one week trial and didn’t realize it continued charging me. I originally signed up for 7.99 a month only to find out a couple months later they were billing me 2.99 a week! Being able to compose songs was a cool idea until I finished a level and earned 200 coins... purchased a newer song for 75 coins that was nothing more than a few taps and that was it. I didn’t get the song I paid for and that’s happened many of times. When someone submits a composure I think someone at the company should review it first before putting it out there for people to waste their money. Lastly... I have maxed out on levels so all the songs I rack points up on are of no use since the app is now not even giving me credit so unless I want to pay for VIP I have no way to earn what little reward you get for completing a level. What started out as my absolute favorite game is now nothing more than a money sucker and it doesn’t appear that it’ll improve. Great game gone to the deleted aps of my account! They aren’t getting anymore of my money!
Horrible ads!
by Mefens on 2017/12/06 13:51
I’ve always enjoyed playing magic piano. Over the years, I’ve had a membership and at other times did not. Currently, I don’t feel I play it enough to justify paying. With that being said, I have noticed some things that make this app not very enjoyable. 1. It takes FOREVER to earn smule coins. Which makes the app not much fun because I feel like I get to play the same songs over and over again. Not cool and not challenging. 2. Under “my songs” I have a bunch of songs which I have either bought or had while having a membership. At this point without clicking on each one there is no way to tell if I’m able to play it or if I need more smule. Confusing. 3. This is the most annoying of all. The ads that I see (which I do feel there are too many of) are not ones that I wish for my kids to see. There are ones that show a doll that is getting beat up and bloodied and tells you you “kick it’s a**” and that this will “relieve your stress”, really?! Not the message I want to send. There are others I have seen that are similar, zombies I believe, and there is a lot of blood. I don’t expect or desire to see these ads, ever, yet alone, over and over again. That needs to be changed or I will have to delete this once great app.
Very good, but some flaws.
by Trtplayer on 2019/02/24 17:46
Your game is very good and I honestly think it could be quite more famous. But there are some flaws... take the amount of ads for example... every time you finish a song, ad. Whenever you want to play a song in the free song list, and I quote,”your free content will be available after this message!” And then an ad. I feel like you just went a little overboard with the ads. And second of all MEMBERSHIPS. People already know that memberships are becoming a problem. They attract you into buying them, they give you a free trial, and they make it so almost everything is membership only. I counted that vip only song list in the menu. Over (drumroll please) 700 SONGS. You might wanna check how much you do to non-members. Finally, this isn’t too much of a complaint but just a thing to tell you. You’re age rating is 4+ right? Well.... Whenever I have to rack up smoola I watch ads and one of them has been catching my eye. You might wanna check your advertising because one of the ads legit has 18+ in the corner and the end of the ad even says,” adult game for adult emotions.” But so yeah just check your ads every so often and I feel like that this game could be much better
Fingers too big?
by Jen Reeves on 2017/09/25 23:10
So I've only had the app for a couple of hours and I signed up for the free seven day trial. I love the selection of songs, and I played a couple on easy mode and thought they were quite fun. But if I change the difficulty above easy, there are times when I'm asked to hit three notes at once. The two dots off to the right are so close together I can't hit them both at the same time. I put my two fingers together as tightly as possible and tap the screen and it's only registering that I'm hitting one of the dots. I don't have big hands, I'm a woman of average height and average weight so my fingers are not chubby or unusual in any way. I feel like I am missing something. Like there Nice to be an obvious solution then I'm just not noticing. Especially because I don't see anyone else complaining about this problem. Maybe there should be settings I can change to make the dots a little bit further apart so that my fingers can hit them, but I don't see anything like that anywhere. So I really like the song selection and I like the concept of the game and the sound is very nice, so I would give it a higher rating if I could actually Play it above easy. Until I figure out what's wrong and how to fix it this app is useless to me.
Love game but....
by Unicorn Magic 432 on 2019/06/27 03:43
This game is a perfect game for when you are bored or stressed and you just want to play the piano. I also love how you are able to make your own music on the app. There are a couple of problems in the problems in the game. The first issue is that the game glitches a lot sometimes and I have to shut my phone off a couple of times and that gets annoying. A second issue is that the game takes a while to load once you open it (the longest I ever waited was about 5-8 minutes). A third issue is that if you want to play a song you have to pay for it or use coins which you have to pay for or earn by watching ads (sometimes the ads don’t even load correctly so you can’t watch the video for coins).The songs are also expensive so it’s hard to get songs. A fourth reason is that when ever I click on something I the app there is add. Adds always pop up and one time one was inappropriate(a choices add that had sexual content).Also if you create a song you don’t get to be able to own it you have to pay for it!!! I understand you guys need to make money somehow but still!!!! I like the game but it needs some tweaks for the perfect fun experience.
WHAT THE HECK SMULE
by I'm a Artist on 2018/04/19 02:09
So I get you guys are a big app now, and I have had Magic Piano since it first came out, years ago. I used it when there was only basic songs like Twinkle Twinkle little Star. I’ve kept it all these years, and never have I gotten so many ads. I have over 150 songs, do you know how many Ads I had to watch? Plus free songs. I also did TapJoy stuff, and never once got my Smula (should be almost 6800 since I did ones you actually had to pay for also) I’ve reported it and then was told it was “Lost” but it said I had done it. Of course I got a little mad. Yet, I still have the app. How am I re-payed? ADS AFTER EVERY SONG! I like to play the songs but it’s annoying when a ad comes in every two seconds. As before I can play to ad after I play then repeat. It’s used to be reasonable, 1 ad after every 3-4 songs. Sometimes 5 if you watched a Smula ad. Don’t you guys already have Millions just from all of your apps combined? You guys are getting greedy. Also the VIP thing. Why are all the good songs VIP? The daily challenges used to be VIP songs, which was cool. But now it’s songs you can go and buy. Tired of it smule. I’ll keep the game and I wish to have my 6800 Smula, but I’m not going to force it. And PLEASE KEEP THE ADS ON A DOWN LOW!
Terrible
by tifpow on 2018/03/21 05:36
This app has gotten worse and worse. There is very rarely any free content created. I have a large library of songs that I accumulated when the app had a bigger variety of free songs, but even I get bored of playing those. So, does that mean I buy a VIP membership? Of course not! It’s super overpriced! To put it into perspective, a year of VIP is $40 which is about as much as a good quality Nintendo DS game. Not only does the Nintendo DS game have more to offer (offense intended) you also get to play it forever. It’s one payment of $40, not $40 a year like Magic Piano. Who in their right mind would buy a VIP subscription to Magic Piano? So, that’s off the table. I should just play the songs I have and get over it right? Or maybe save up smoola to get more. First of all, smoola takes forever to earn. I’ve been playing this game on and off for years and I got enough smoola to buy one song ONCE. Not to mention I had accumulated a lot of smoola at a point (probably over 100) and I opened the app one day and it was gone! The only reason I gave this app any stars at all is because if you’re playing one of the few decent songs you can, it’s really really fun. But it’s a terrible app that begs for money from us and lost what made it so great.
Good but some problems
by doglover828 on 2020/01/11 01:12
I love this game! I think it’s very creative the way they made you play the piano. I have never seen a game like this before it’s so unique! But there is always a but sooooo story time! So I was trying to get some more money ( I forgot the name of the money in the game) so I watched an add to get some money and I looked at where my money was and it stayed the same! But I thought it was a little glitch so I tried again and the same thing happened! I rebooted my iPad several times but it still never gave me more money. I got very frustrated with this problem. Please work on it. (or is it my iPad...) ok next problem ( I know too many problems and and it’s getting annoying but just stay with me PLEASE!) ok so the next thing that happened was I finally got enough money to get a new song. And I picked the song I wanted but then when I looked back at my songs it wasn’t there! Please work on that problem (or is it just my iPad again?!) ok so the point is GET THIS GAME I know I complained a lot but I would still get this game if I were you so yeah. PEACE OUT
Timing....too slow...???!
by lilpkrmnstr on 2018/04/30 04:47
I love this app, but the one thing I can't stand is when it tells me I'm being too slow.. but I'm trying to play the song the way it sounds.. And it always seems to want to rush me. I'd rather be able to play the song the way it feels in the way it sounds rather than having the app tell me I'm playing too slow. Messing up is one thing, but having a longer pause at the end of that set because you're playing it with feeling is another. I think that should be fixed. Make room for a real or with feeling pause. Also.. I LOVE the community section. However, I think people just messing around makes it hard to find the people who have actually created an amazing piece. That's frustrating. If you want the quality of the app, you pay for it. Have a passion for piano music, you pay for it. People who love it will pay for it. I would love to get rid of the “junk” on it... the songs people create that make no sense. They should have to be approved or something. Keep the crap out.
UUGGHH SO ANNOYING!! ADS?!?
by Pookeylookey on 2018/10/31 12:14
So many ads!! I know it helps the company, but there’s so much to were I get out of the game because of them. Don’t get me wrong, I love the game (kinda addicted) but I redownloaded the game the other day, and I don’t remember the game having so much ads. I mean cmon. I get on the app, ad, when I pick a song that I’ve already watched 40 million ads for, ANOTHER AD, and even when I get done playing a song..guess what, ANOTHER AD!!! cmon smule, where’s the game that I enjoyed without getting all these stupid ads. Plus, it’s like the same ads everyday. I’m okay with ads (because every game has them). Buttttt when they interrupt EVERY SINGLE TIME I PLAY, then I’m either gonna delete the game I love, or give y’all a review and hope y’all address and fix the problem. :) Yes, I understand y’all benefit from ads, but surely for how many people play yalls apps, and how many ads y’all have on a game in general, I think y’all are good on money. Please Please PlEaSe fix the PrObLeM!!!!! LOVE AND KIND, LAYTHEN!!! :) P.s- I love the game, and the games y’all produce. But, it’s basically all the stikin ads that I have to deal with just on this game. I hope y’all can fix this. Have a great day! :)
No longer worth my time; TRASH
by Niniroman on 2018/12/08 05:54
I never spend the time to review, however my disappointment in the evolution of this game pushed me to do so. I first played magic piano around 6-7 years ago and I absolutely loved it. There were plenty of accessible songs and I would earn a nice classical piece every time I leveled up. There were plenty of songs to choose from and I did not mind spending hard earned coins to gain popular songs like Mario’s theme song and Beethoven Sonatas. The amount of ads was reasonable and felt like an acceptable exchange for the playtime they provided. Now it is trash. As others have commented, there are ads before and after playing one song (most of the time). You get free songs for leveling up much less frequently and when you do they are not very desirable (I.e very short happy birthday). Even with all that ad watching, there are only 8 free songs, and most songs are for VIP members only. I loved this game for the classical music and there is barely access to any classical pieces for free anymore. I am extremely disappointed with the direction of this company. I do not recommend their products. And hope others will take notice and do the same. I hope they change for the better after seeing the many complaints here.
In Game Currency
by bubblez110123 on 2019/09/13 01:01
Ive had this game for about 5 years. I have had 3 accounts and all has been good. Though, i wouldn’t recommend you download this app. Here are a few reasons why. 1)you cant watch adds to get in game currency to buy new songs, but the past 2 years if you get an add that has a demo at the end ( and if the x isnt tinted grey ) you wont get your currency. I kid you not i watched 20 mins of adds and got 5 (= 1 add) its bs. 2) the game feels rather single player even though its an online game. While yes you can play other peoples songs ( and their copies) you cant do anything else. It would be nice to at least have a comments section. 3) copies are on about every song. And they do absolutely nothing about it. Now the copies of their 75 smoola ( igc ) songs are completely fine by me! But the countless copies of one persons hard work is ridiculous. The one person who tapped their screen for hours get no credit because there isn't even a way to find the original creator. Overall this game is a money scheme. They want your money so you can progress and you unlock new songs to progress. But at least its a reasonably fun money scheme!
AD AND BUG/GLITCH INFESTED APP!!
by Alcrex0260 on 2017/11/15 03:31
Used to like the game but maybe if they added an instant replay feature pianist can see where they might have messed up, and also there’s a bug or glitch that makes the songs I purchased with smolda coins via search, the only songs that show up in the “my songs” section is the songs that the app created. It’s really annoying when I can’t play the songs I spent a long time watching ads to get. And also sometimes I sit through a 30-50 second ad and I don’t even get the coins for it, um..... WHATTTTT?!?!?!? I used to really like this game. I played it for hours without any ads and it was fun and enjoyable and all bugs were squashed, but now we have ads around every corner, bug nests everywhere and ads with sexual content, um excuse me but (no offense intended to Smule) who do you think you are?! It’s an app rated 4+ so there should be content that’s appropriate for 4+ aged people. UNACCEPTABLE!! How would you feel, developers of Smule, if your child was playing an app and encounters an ad containing sexual content? I would feel like a bad parent! And if more and more people feel the app makes them feel like bad parents, they’ll delete the app and you’ll loose money! Then what will you do? Just think about that.
The glitch😤
by I❤️EDM on 2018/06/23 19:57
Overall I think this app is fun and I like that there’s a ton of songs to choose from. But I’m writing this review because of one problem in particular I’m having. When I play on the hard level, (using up to four fingers) often for some unknown reason it will keep pausing even though I do NOT hit the pause button. This happens a lot now (sometimes ten times a song...no exaggeration!) Also it’s started to glitch out right into other apps when I’m right in the middle of a song. It’s getting very annoying. Please fix this! (A month later) Something just popped up on my screen on how to make it stop pausing right in the middle so many times of every song. I did it and it worked. Thanks! I’ll bump it up to four stars now. I’d have a better chance of giving it five stars if there weren’t soooo many ads (An ad after every song you play and sometimes you’re required to watch an ad before you can even begin playing a song) and if the songs didn’t cost so much.
Major Problem (developers please fix)
by pink whale dolphin on 2019/06/12 14:07
At first I really loved this game but lately I have been having a huge problem with it. If you own this game and only have a few songs you won’t see this problem as much but I own around 20 songs. Not all of the songs I have bought, won, or chosen from “free songs” show up in “my songs” many of them are still in free songs and some of them don’t show up anywhere. Now that is a problem but wait there is an even bigger one. Some times a song that I own doesn’t show up in “my songs” or in “free songs” it shows up in “suggested songs” or in “editor’s choice” (even when I search my songs this happens) it says I own it and the stars are even fulled in. Well I go to click on it because obviously I have payed for that song and I want to play it but it says that I am blank many smoolas short like I have to buy it again. WHAT? I ALREADY PAYED FOR IT ONCE I HAVE TO PAY FOR IT AGAIN? This is really frustrating. If it wasn’t for this major problem I would give this app five or four stars if it didn’t have this problem, it is really fun and I love playing the songs. But please fix this major problem I want my songs back.
Disappointing
by uwu 4 u on 2019/01/13 04:55
Ideally this would be a great app. It was fun for a bit but there is really not that much you can do without spending money. Smoola, their currency, is soooo hard to obtain. There are these achievements you can get but after the first few easy ones you realize that the rest are impossible to get. You have to play more songs to get the achievements that get you smoola, but to be able to play those songs you have to buy them with smoola. Either way you need smoola and the only way to get it is to buy it with real money. There are tons of ads just to play song that last only one or two minutes. Whenever I saved up enough smoola ( a rare occurrence) I was so happy because that means I could get a song. So over the course of the few years that I have had this app, I have been able to buy ONLY FOUR SONGS! (I don't use this app that often, maybe once a week or a bit more). I also wish there was a way to preview the songs before you buy them. For two out of my four purchased songs, I have been disappointed with the way they sound. This app would be so much better if you didn't have to spend so much money to enjoy it.
Really?
by g-c-hoo on 2020/06/20 18:13
This used to be a great app. But now all sorts of problems have surfaced. The first one is a terrible glitch that ruins the whole game. I am currently trying to earn achievements to earn smoola. The one I’m doing right now is play ten songs perfectly. I keep trying to play songs, but as I am tapping the screen, say on the right side, it will say I’m also tapping on the left and will say that I’m tapping with too many fingers! This makes it impossible to complete the achievement. The second one is how hard it is to earn smoola. To earn them you either have to level up, or earn an achievement. It is extremely hard to level up and as I said before that glitch makes it very hard to earn achievements. The reason it is hard to level up is that it barely gives you any xp after you finish a song. You need about 10,000 xp to level up where I’m at. But when you finish a song that lasts longer than three minutes it only gives you 300 xp.
Great Game... but also some honesty
by lSIRsmokeALOTl on 2018/03/02 20:42
Alright, so I would like to start by stating that I absolutely love this game as a game, but I've come across some shady business practices from Smule considering their billing agreement. I did the one week trial, loved it and then paid for another. I decided I needed to not pay for the subscription for personal finance reasons, so I canceled my VIP membership. Low and behold they charged me for VIP the next week, so I removed PayPal from my payment methods on iTunes. Funny thing is, even after cancelling the subscription and removing PayPal as a payment method they continued to charge me for four more consecutive weeks. I had to claim fraudulent charges through my bank to get the payments to stop. I'm not sure if this was a mistake or shady business practices, but make sure you manually stop the recurring charges through your bank if you want to stop the VIP membership. That is honestly the only reason I gave this game three stars. If not for that singular incident I would definitely have rated it 5 stars. Great game! Love it! But I'm going to be uninstalling it after my experience.
Scam
by Cchhoollee on 2018/07/19 03:07
I used to love this app, but now it’s just disappointing. I opened the app for the first time in about a year yesterday, and all of the thirty something songs I had ever purchased and played were gone. Even a song that I bought last night was gone by this morning. It’s pretty much impossible to get coins without purchasing them with real money, and I wasn’t going to spend that much time watching ads. Another horrible change that I’ve noticed is the increase in ads. A year ago, all of the songs in the free section used to actually be free. But now, you have to watch an ad before playing one. Even if you want to change the difficulty, you have to watch an ad. Ads never used to be apparent in the app unless you watched them for coins, but now they pop up after you play almost any song, even if you have actually purchased it. After reading a lot of reviews, I am positive that everything that is happening to me is not a unique glitch, and is probably a scam put into place by Smule so they can earn more money. Don’t waste your time trying to make good use of this app. It’s not worth it. There are plenty of other much better versions out there.
So. Many. Freaking. Ads.
by LittleNerdyElephant on 2018/01/11 01:03
Ugh, BEFORE and AFTER I play a song, I have to watch an ad. I can’t X out of it, because then I just close out of the app and lose my progress, and end up repeating what I tried and failed to do before. I give it three stars, mainly because it is a great app overall, with fun songs and options, xp points after every song you play that you save to level up, rewards, etc. I think it would be such a better game if there weren’t as many advertisements! Also, almost everything is too pricey. It is hard to get through the game without purchasing something. There are only eight free songs I know of, without being a VIP, and once you complete those, you kinda have to just replay them until you level up and get more smoola to buy a song. I think this game has potential, but please add in more free songs and lower the amount of ads I see, because honestly it is super annoying, and I want to delete it but I would lose all my progress. If you make these simple changes, my star rating will go up, and I guarantee others will too.
Time for a change!
by On the second day on 2017/08/10 18:03
I've had Smule for about three years now and have noticed major changes in the downward direction, sometimes I ask myself why do I still play....why because it is fun after you get through the extremely loud commercials. Some commercials can last as long as 30 seconds and they are now using commercials with sexual orientation and I heard the F word this week on a new commercial. I hope Smule doesn't think only adults use this app because I know several minors that use this. Usually you have to listen to two commercials before playing a song which is tiresome. As for the new composers feature I personally do not care for it because all it does is make about 20 songs of the same song and when you finally get a free song it'll give you a duplicated song that you already have, just made by someone else. it takes a long time sometimes to get a free song even when it asks you would you like a free song today?... and then they don't give you one! I will not pay an annual membership to play this game. Smule needs to get it together and make this app fun for everyone.
Isn’t worth it if you don’t pay VIP
by tessmelane on 2019/11/01 06:24
I’ve used this app since 2012 and it’s definitely changed over the years. Before there were no adds and it was easier to gain Smoola. Now it’s really not worth playing if you aren’t going to pay for it, there is an INSANE amount of adds, and saving up money takes a while so it’s hard to get songs, at least the ones that aren’t VIP only anyways. I pay for the app and honestly it’s not that horrible in price if you’re going to actually spend time with it. There’s no adds and you can basically play whatever you want. I like that you can add whatever songs or search for literally anything from others who have added songs. For some reason or another (probably the lack of the plague of adds) the VIP version runs super smoothly in comparison and I haven’t experienced any glitching, which honestly surprises me. Basically, if you don’t want to pay for it save yourself the frustration. If you do, it’s a great app.
This is my favorite game in the whole world
by Wifey290 on 2018/01/13 08:16

No longer any good
by Lvsdolls on 2019/06/24 01:46
I played this app when it was first available. I loved it! There were a few ads plus you could earn Smula by watching an ad. It was reasonable. Now! You have to watch an ad before and after the few free songs available AND the songs that are mine, that I bought, now have an ad after playing but before u get your points. If you don’t watch the ad you lose your points. Earning Smula is insane! The number of ads involved just to get points towards a level that when complete gives you 1 Smula. Any song to buy is 25 Smula (to put it in perspective). I don’t recommend this game or any games thru this company. They are greedy and underhanded. They used to be one of my favorite and trusted companies. I hope this company realizes that no one is going to pay u for ads if u have no one playing your games. You seriously need to revamp how your doing your games before your greed puts you out of business!!! It’s not like there’s no competition with other similar games!! DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS GAME. Be prepared to spend 90% of your time watching ads if you try out this game. The single star I gave is a tribute for the way this game used to be.
Im so bitter
by Ɩıŋɖʂɛყ on 2018/08/02 04:03
I’m so incredibly disappointed in this app. I used to have it a long time ago and I loved it SO MUCH. it was so soothing and I would play it every night before I went to sleep. But that was on my old iPad, and now it’s incompatible with the app. I had never played it with my phone cause I thought the screen would be too play to play properly (I was right), so I never got it. Then I saw an ad for it and I thought “that would be fun to try again!” WRONG. I’m so mad. The first thing it’s greets me with is “you wanna but a membership that’s way overpriced?”. Then after that I tried to play a song and was bombarded with SO MANY ADS!! Also, I tried to play a song from the little mermaid that had the voice along with it, and it WAS NOT synced up at all!! I used to play the ones with the voice all the time, so I know how it works. I wasn’t doing it wrong. When did this app become such a sell out?!? Literally like 3/4th of the app is all ads. It’s completely ridiculous. I’m so disappointed and frustrated. I just wanted that soothing experience again. Listen Smule, you don’t need all this crap to sell your app. You’re just making people mad. Please give up back what we want.
>:(
by micraftisdabest:) on 2020/04/25 15:13
Alright, so I remembered this app from when I was about 3 years old. My brother had it on his tablet, so I would always ask to play it. Hey, at least back then it was good! But now it’s gone REALLY down hill. There’s an ad every time I finish a song. Then when I go to play a different song, there’s another ad! It’s super annoying when I go to play songs! Also, there is a glitch. When I go to get free Smoola by watching an ad, it doesn’t make the count go up! If there’s a demo after the ad it doesn’t go up, but if there is no demo it will go up. So I basically waste 5 minutes trying to get some more Smoola by watching ads. So maybe try to get the ads WITHOUT demos. Because every single ad I get, there’s always a demo. That’s fine after playing a song, but not when I get free Smoola. It’s really annoying wasting my time which I could spend on better things watching ads. So try to fix this glitch please! Other than that, it’s still kinda good. You can still get songs, and I love composing my own songs, so it’s kinda good. Thank you for reading.
Helpful ideas!!!!
by JHONOSAURUS REX on 2018/05/16 01:29
I think that this is a very fun and creative app, but only when people stop copying the same song from each other. The sad thing is that they aren’t even the right song. For example, I wanted to play the song “Every time we Touch” by cascada and when I search it up, I see that all of the songs say cascada on them. But when I listen to them, they aren’t even remotely close to the actual song. I would love it if you could add something to prevent that since it is very annoying. Aside from that, I think it would be a good idea for you to add a function that allows you to transpose songs that you have downloaded on iTunes for the piano. So basically, if I have a song on iTunes that isn’t on the app, I could select the function and it would transpose itself to match the app. I think that it would be a good idea, and I think that it will make the app more enjoyable. Overall, it is a very fun app and I would like to see more happen with it. Thank you!
Too many Ads now! Poor song selection
by Ashlish on 2017/10/16 04:12
I'm finally irritated enough to write this review. This use to be my favorite app, hands down. So fun and included challenges and current music. However, now there are so many ad disruptions. Playing a new tune, first an ad....playing a song you have already paid for, first an ad.... playing a free song made by another user, first an ad. It's ridiculous. Now, I barely play it, unless I have time and patience to sit through five ads in less than ten minutes. Total sell out move, btw Smule. I wouldn't mind buying it, but a monthly fee is charged with an auto subscription, or you have to sign up for a slippery trial offer. Not a good deal. Also, there use to be new songs made by Smule that were free. Now, it's the same songs over and over made by different users-Chasing Cars, Gravity Falls Theme, Hokage's Death, Hallelujah, What a Wonderful World.....seriously! It's been those songs for at least a year now. Change it up a bit and I don't mean different Smule user composers. That comes off pretty cheap and makes me wonder what I would get from allowing you to charge my card every month if I signed up.
There are things that need to be improved
by MinecraftMermaids👍 on 2018/11/25 20:54
I really do like the game a lot, which may seem weird considering my 3-star rating. It’s just there are a few things about this game that make it less enjoyable. One: how hard it is to make Smoola. Honestly I’ve just given up on leveling entirely because I’m only getting 1 smoola every time I level up! You may say that you’re making up for it by giving us songs when we level up instead of Smoola, but I’m sorry, not all of us WANT to play classic songs. It was much better when you got 25 Smoola for leveling up, because it felt more rewarding and we could actually get the songs we want. Two: WAYYYYYY too many ads. I don’t want to see an ad every time I finish playing a song. I’ve actually had to find ways to avoid getting the ads just so I don’t have to watch them, but then I don’t get the XP for the song I just played. Maybe you should just leave the ads in the get more Smoola area. Three (and this is the biggest one in my opinion): The fact that it pauses any time I press the screen with four fingers. Ok, it makes sense that the pause screen would be sensitive if I push hard on the screen, but it’s doing it almost every single time I use four fingers, making it almost IMPOSSIBLE to play certain songs and enjoy them because it’s pausing every two seconds. Maybe you should make it so that the pause screen isn’t so sensitive to touch and there’s just an actual button to pause it, because this is getting really annoying.
It is okay, BUT could be better!!!
by Twinkies5everrr on 2018/02/16 05:58
I believe that Magic Piano is a good app. It is fun and creative.., and I really like the fact that people have the opportunity to compose songs ^-^... however, there are some huge problems about this app -.-... To begin with, there are SERIOUSLY WAYYYYY too many advertisements. (No exaggeration) There is an ad EVERY single time I finish a song. Also, when I select a free song (Or even one of mY songs!¡!) to play, an ad/video pops up. I think this is very annoying and makes me a lottt less interested to play the game. Another problem is that since a lot of the songs are not free, it is really hard to buy songs when you barely have any smoolas. It is so hard to get smoolas because (i don't know if this is just me) every time i complete those free offers to get smoolas, it NEVER works. Back in the olden days where the compose magic piano update was long gone, the offers would actually work and reward me... Magic Piano was not that bad a while ago, but now, its progress is going downhill :(
Amazing but a few cons
by 🐱Graystripe🐱 on 2019/12/24 16:29
Magic piano is amazing! I love to play it everyday and compose new songs. Considering I play the piano in real life, magic piano Is so much like that. But, there are a few cons for this game that should be fixed. 1) It’s so hard to get smoolas. Every song is at least 25 or 75 smoolas. Every time you level up, you always get one. 2) I love to compose song, but the problem is that once it is composed and published, you can’t play it anymore. You would need to spend 25 smoolas if you would want to. For your OWN SONG. 3) You can always listen to the song before playing it, but the problem is that you can’t listen to the whole song. So thanks to that, I spend 25 smoola on a song that WASN’T EVEN FINISHED! Besides all of this, it is fun 4) As a pianist, I actually enjoy this app, but what I don’t like is that every note is a quarter note. That is why some song don’t sound correct. Most song have half notes, eighth notes, whole notes, dotted half notes, and so on. So can you PLEASE fix that. 5) it’s hard to keep your songs. There was this song that was given to me as a gift when I first joined Magic Piano, and now it wants me to pay for its access. I should have kept it, but nooo, now they took it away from me. There is this other song I was given free, and now they took the access away from it too Please fix these if you can. Also, keep up the good work.
Not Sure What to Think
by BlitzyWolf on 2019/01/21 02:29
I grew up playing this and thought it was amazing. However, after deleting it after a few years and deciding to revisit a childhood memory...it most certainly disappointed me. The constant ads drive me insane whenever I play various songs of a relatively short duration. Not only that, but being able to afford the songs I wish to play is just depressing to look at without the means of spending money. Although I understand there must be ads and a reason to become a VIP to earn money, I don’t see a purpose strong enough to convince me to spend a penny on this app. On a different note, I’ve played this on my iPad and have found it exceedingly frustrating to attempt playing songs on a hard difficulty due to the four finger taps available during them, because it pauses the song and brings up a menu from the bottom about half of the times I try to play the four finger notes. I’m unsure why a pausing mechanic like that was implemented into the game due to inconvenience and how unnecessary it is. So, I highly doubt that I will return to using this app unless some of its serious issues are properly addressed.
Great app, but..
by Gohrikat on 2020/04/14 21:01
This app is truly amazing! So much fun and occupying, very easy and fun, and there are so many different songs to play. However, I sincerely wish that we did not have to watch so many ads. It gets annoying very fast, and it makes me not want to play. Another problem I have with this game is that you have to pay a lot of smoola for just one song. The songs get up to 75 smoola currently, and to get free smoola, you need to do things that some people can’t actually do. For example, you can connect to Facebook, which some people are unable to do because they don’t have Facebook. And there are a lot of children playing this game as well that are not allowed to have certain social media. Another thing is you can watch a 23 second ad for just 5 smoola. Its not very fun when all you can do at one point is watch ads for smoola and play all the free songs. (Which, in my opinion, are ever very fun.) This app would be absolutely amazing if we could do some easier things to get smoola.
Good game...needs improvement
by mashingpotatoV22 on 2019/06/16 16:28
I have been playing smule piano for a long time on and off, and I have realize the pros and cons of the game. Here are the pros... PROS: 1. Good music selection 2. Different piano sounds 3. Daily challenges + rewards For the most part smule has done a good job creating music and allowing others to do so too, but here are the cons..... CONS: 1. When let’s say you have an account and make a song inspired by another person’s song, you should be allowed to play it without having to buy it with smule coins, which brings me to the next con 2. There should be more opportunities to get smule coins then leveling up (which only gives you like 2 coins). When there are songs that cost 25 coins each, you should have more options to get coins than just watching the same video over and over again for 5 coins 3. Sometimes when I get in to the app (on iPhone and iPad) it just stops at the smule logo and I have to tap out and try it again. 4. And finally, when playing on an iPhone, it is sometimes hard to keep up on the singing piano mode because the 4 notes are hard to press. This meet mean I’m not the best digital piano player but I think amateur will understand Overall smule piano is a great game but it needs some improvements. And know that it was hard for me to come up with pros. And one last thing, can smule please change the singing on the ads for smule singing because man, they are so out of tune.😒🙏🏻
It’s great!!! But...
by Heggru on 2018/09/03 22:51
This is by far my favorite app of all time! But... it’s got a one thing that isn’t so great. when ever I try to watch an video to get more smoola, it lets me watch it but then doesn’t give me the smoola and I’ve tried over and over again but it still won’t work!!! And when ever I get free songs it says that I need to pay for them even after it lets me play them!!! And sooooo many of my favorite songs need VIP access and I don’t have the money for something a stupid as a couple of songs on an app!!! But I still love this app even when it kills me off of it repeatedly and sometimes forces me to delete it along with all the songs I’ve payed for!!! And don’t even get me stated on the freaking billions of ads!!!! They suckkkkk!!! And almost every time I mess up it either doesn’t say anything or says something completely different then what I did and I know what I did but it’s kinda annoying to have it not tell me.
Not worth the time
by Hunter(Soda_Pressed) on 2019/07/14 18:31
It’s pretty fun, and I don’t really mind the excessive amount of ads, I know you need to get money somehow. But my complaints are that first of all, there is very few chances to earn Smoola (or Smula, or however it’s spelled). I don’t feel like signing up for some subscription to pay for an app on my iPod, so if I want to get a new song I have to use the in-game currency. It’s extremely hard to just accumulate the currency over time, so I tried watching the ads to get 5 more Smoola, but nothing happened and I didn’t receive any money. I watched an ad, and the number of Smula I already had showed a loading sign, but then disappeared and I still had the same amount I did before. Usually I wouldn’t really care, after all, it’s just a game and I doesn’t really matter. But I really wanted to play this one song, and besides, I watch so many ads all the time, that if i got 5 Smula every time I watched one, I’d be rolling in cash. Another issue is how half the songs are only for VIPs. Again, I’m not going to pay real money just to play a song I already know how to play on a real piano. But of course, you don’t really read the reviews at all, do you? Dozens of people like me have the same complaints, and you haven’t changed a single thing. I’m wasting my time. Sorry for it being so long. Those are my thoughts. I say don’t get this app if you’re going to take it seriously. If you just want some relaxation, this is fine. Hunter
Sort of amazing.!
by iab524 on 2019/12/26 16:45
So this game is so FUN! It’s so addicting. But I have to list a few problems. 1. When I compose a song, (I made jingle bells) I have to pay smoola for my own song? I wanted to play it, for free. It’s confusing. Would the smoola go to me? Or will it go to a random player? Or will it go to you? My brain is confused. Also, I payed for the jingle bells once, and I have to pay again. And, smoola is hard to get. You should get 5-10 smoola each level up. 2. I have to watch an ad for every song I play. Okay, I get that you need someway to make money, but I play a lot of 30 sec to 20 songs and then I get a one minute ad? At least have the duration of the ad shorter or about the same length of the song. (This is my opinion, and I get it and I’m okay with if you can’t change the ads.) 3. The levels. It takes too long for you to level up. I really want to level up to get the classic guitar, it is relaxing, but I don’t want to pay like 495 smoola to get it. Also, it is the same for the Vocal Choir. It is so funny but I don't want to pay 495 smoola. Who has that much, anyway? (Not meant to be rude) I only have 17, haha! Like I said, this app is amazing. Please tale this as constructive criticism to make your app better. Sorry if this was offensive to you guys in any way. Thank you for making this app! Have a good day. Iab signing out!
Used to be great
by Pyrowo1f on 2018/03/20 20:53
This app used to be a lot of fun. I used to play it every day. Since then, I moved on, but I remembered the app and came back. It’s taken a turn for the worst now. You used to have an ad-free experience even as a free user. You could still watch ads to get the in-app currency, Smoola, so you could buy songs. I did this almost religiously day by day. You can still do this, too. However, now you also get an ad after every. Single. Song. And that’s assuming you own the song. If you don’t, you’ll need to watch an ad before you play the song, too. The composer feature is incredible, and the user created songs are wonderful. The fact that they only cost 25 Smoola a piece is awesome. The ability to share your performances with friends, family, and the world (through the in-app “World” feature and the Smule website) is cool, too. But the entire experience is completely ruined by the prevalence and disruptiveness of the endless ads. Unless, of course, you pay the subscription fee on a monthly, three month, or annual basis.
It’s amazing a few fixes tho
by five stars girls on 2019/04/08 15:37
This game is absolutely amazing I love all of the songs they are difficult I like that.... But it could use a few fixes like it does freeze a lot that is a little bit annoying if you guys could fix that that would make my day also about the memberships why do all of every ones favorite song require a membership I am a little disappointed about that but it’s is still an amazing app a few another thing why is there so many pop ups after every song you have to either watch a video or see another pop up it is very annoying if you guys could fix it that would be great this app needs a few fixes but that’s ok because I still rated it 5 stars it is an amazing app I love it is addicting, fun, challenging, and I absolutely love it thanks for making this game such a successful game for every one😎😁😊🥳🤩
AWESOME! Get it! its worth it!
by WaterAirFireEarth on 2018/07/13 02:05
Okay so i have probably had this app for like three years or something and i just recently came back to it and fell in love with it. and theres all these bad reviews like “ Oh theres too many adds” or “They all cost coins to get them!” Witch is bull because all games have adds try to think of one game on you're phone or iPad right now that doesn't have adds? Yeah you couldn't think of any could you. and its not like theres That many either. and for the people who say “oh well most of the songs cost coins!” Seriously? Theres a get more coins section and all you have to do is watch an add and u get enough coins for you're new song there. all i'm trying to say is this a great app and anyone who is thinking about getting it get it! because theres no hurt in giving it a try and if u don't like it then just delete it.
This app has gone downhill.
by Pinapplesonpizza on 2018/08/21 06:09
I used to thoroughly enjoy this app, but it has become consistently worse as time has gone on. There used to be occasional ads, which are understandable, as you do have to make money, but now there are ads before and after almost every song. In similar fashion, you used to be able to play your songs offline, however now, to foster more advertising, no doubt, you must be online to play. Songs you purchase also have developed a nasty tendency of disappearing from one’s list of songs, and are still playable without purchase if you search for them, however this is annoying when you just wish to scroll through yours songs and play one, and it disappeared without your knowing. There was a time I’d have rated this app 5 stars, but due to increasing problems that add up, I’m giving it 2. I’m going to keep it downloaded in case updates fix any of these problems, but for now I’m going to stop playing, so they don’t get advertising money that I don’t think they deserve off of me.
Some magic in magic piano smule
by sophieshopkins😊 on 2018/06/24 01:49
I used to not like this game at all. I was thinking about deleting the app last time I played, but when I played it again, some things changed. There is actually some songs I like that are free, but ads. When you click on a song to play, it says your free content will be available after this ad, and it’s really annoying. I’ve gotten used to it, but I feel like they should get rid of that. Tons of people are tired of ads on games, and maybe magic piano smule can get rid of the ads on this game. That would totally bring back a lot of people. I 85% of me thought it was a good idea to delete this app, but I’m lowering it to a 40% now because I’m kinda impressed. Also, it’s kind of cool how there’s a ton of options other than ads to get free smoola. And I like that it’s only 25 smoola for songs I like instead of like 50. But on the other hand, you don’t get much smoola at all when you level up. They should give you 5 smoola, not like two! I’ll give it one more stars than I did before.
This is not fair
by Frankiew0415060 on 2017/09/23 14:25
Ok so my 6 year old brother had my phone and he knows everything about it so he added his finger print to the phone and I had the Touch ID for my Apple ID and I found out I was getting these charges I didn’t know what they were at first but then I checked it out and saw charges from magic piano I haven’t even played this game in like 2 months so when I saw I got charges I thought that it was a mistake but I called my card and they told me that about a month ago I applied for a subscription on the app magic piano like I said I haven’t played this game I’m forever the only person that played it was my little brother and since he had my finger print he purchased the subscription and no one knew he might’ve thought it was free because when the purchase screen shows up it says free trial key word free so my brother saw that and pressed the button he saw the fingerprint sign and but his finger this is not fair at all we didn’t even know we were being charged and we weren’t even playing the game this is really unfair and I will never download this game again

Glitches

I am a long time user with this app, I have been using it for years. But whenever I try to get money by watching adds, it will show me the add but not give me the 💰 so can you please fix that? 🙃🙃
Earning smoola is a joke
by CALMSmomma on 2020/08/06 05:25
I used to love this game and I played all the time. Watching videos to earn smoola was amazing and easy, but then it wouldn’t give me the smoola for watching the videos. Plus all of the extra activities you can do to earn the smoola is a joke, it says you have to earn 100% on the quizzes and I know I have without a doubt and it will give me some bull crap score like 67% (two quizzes in a row gave me the same score) even though one of them was a no brained quiz (find the foxes in each picture). They have numerous false advertisements saying things like “3 questions” and “only takes 90 seconds” when in reality it takes near 20 minutes to complete one quiz for it to tell you that you didn’t pass it. I’m highly disappointed with this game that used to be my favorite. I won’t be playing anymore.
it’s alright
by thatGurl6799😂 on 2020/08/05 01:24
i used to love this game, but i recently re-downloaded it and every time i watch an ad to earn coins, if doesn’t give them to me, other than that it’s great

Good game! But it needs one important thing
by Lookatthisdude5987 on 2020/08/02 22:36
I have loved this game ever since I was a young child. But I’ve always wished I could create my own songbook (playlist), for better organization. I mean it’s nice the songs are in alphabetical order. But I just want to make my own songbooks (playlists). But over I love this game!
Why?
by DoodleDogFluffy on 2020/08/02 21:23
This app used to be super fun, but now everything costs outrageous amounts of the in-game currency. In addition, none of the quests would give me currency and neither would the ads I tried to watch. Do not download.
No free smule for ad watching
by Janzyellie on 2020/08/01 19:32
Tap to get 5 free smule points-watch ad- SORRY- you get nothing-RIP OFF- deserves zero stars

by romagerda on 2020/08/01 11:07
I can’t play easy mode and pls put it back the way it was I hate it 😭😭😭😭😭😭 I barely can’t play easy mode thanks alot😭 for only iOS pls
Fix it
by Normal player 1 on 2020/07/31 22:58
It is a good game a good idea, but fix it. I did a survey to get in game money and it didn’t work. I watched 3 ads to get in game money and it didn’t work. I can only wonder what would happen if I spent real money.
No Free watch Ad Smoola’s
by savagegranny64 on 2020/07/30 18:00
Use to get 5 free Smoola for watching an AD Tried this several times and not receiving any smoola after AD is over. What is up with that?
R u serious?????
by Hi people:) on 2020/07/30 17:51
So I’ve always loved this game and I just got a new phone so I downloaded this. As you know if you’ve had the app, after the first song you get to pick a free song. After a song I went to look for it and it was gone! I didn’t make a huge deal out of it because it was free, but I was still upset to lose it. Then I managed to accumulate 51 smoola by doing most of the achievements and completing levels, but it took forever. Then, I went to go buy 2 of my favorite songs (the songs are way overpriced) and THE SAME THING HAPPENED! I was just looking for them hoping to gain some XP but they were gone! I am really upset because it took me forever to get the smoola. Deleting the app right now.
It got rid of the songs I purchased in app
by J4V_tw3Ety on 2020/07/30 09:16
I can’t play the tunes I want to play anymore cause the app decided to get rid of everything I paid smula for
“Free” smoola
by Frog_in_a_blender on 2020/07/29 20:09
I used to love this game but now I don’t, I watched an ad to get free smoola, I didn’t get any smoola. I thought it might be a glitch or something, so I watched another ad and no smoola, also the amount of ads you have to watch, it’s just not worth it.
⚠️FREE SMOOLA NEVER HONORED⚠️
by SailorVenus418 on 2020/07/29 18:12
Please fix this!!! Every time I watch an ad to gain 5 Smoola, it doesn’t give me any at all! I noticed I’m not the only one experiencing this massive issue. I’ve scrolled through all of the MOST CRITICAL reviews and I’ve counted FIFTY+ PEOPLE that are experiencing this major inconvenience! I love this game, but just for the many failed free Smoola attempts I have suffered, I strongly dislike it!!! I hope this gets fixed!!! - SailorVenus418
Watch ads for smoolas
by Mocesito on 2020/07/28 20:08
I’ve continuously watched ads to earn smoolas and I haven’t earn anything at all. Can you please fix this issue otherwise make the rest of the songs VIP exclusive.
Pls help

Key lags
by lannayyy on 2020/07/27 03:52
I love the app it’s just every time I play a lvl medium or hard and I get 3 or 4 keys it always lags. I press on it and it’s slow to process and it always say to slow or I pressed to much keys and it does it on all medium and hard lvls on any song but I don’t have a problem with the one or two keys
Just OK
by Texasmomof3yearold on 2020/07/25 21:48
Not a great game for young teens, & the songs are to long.
Scammers!
by mewtwo2.0 on 2020/07/25 13:30
Ur getting money from Advertising for nothing! Ive been watching ads but havent been receiving smoola!
What happened to this game
by Marylyn1980 on 2020/07/24 21:59
Seems each time I visit it gets worse why can’t I earn 5 Smula by watching a stupid ad ? I’ve tried and tried yet you idiots seem to get a kick out of pissing me and I’m sure many others off by changing the game fix it please.
Smoola issues
by Emerald The Panda on 2020/07/24 12:56
Every time I try and get free smoola, I watch the ad and nothing happens. I refresh and everything but still, nothing. Please fix this! Magic piano is really cool but if free smoola actually worked It would be a lot better!
Confused and annoyed, please fix this
by Ok this name couldnt be taken on 2020/07/22 22:10
PLEASE READ THIS! All the songs are soooo expensive! I wish that I could earn more Smoola for playing song or achieving goals. Or, maybe things could be cheaper... Also the game said I could earn 5 Smoola for watching an ad so I watched it and I never got any Smoola Why? I have watched soo many ads by now🤷🏼‍♀️🙍🏼‍♀️🙎🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️😤
scam
by Lstar- on 2020/07/21 21:30

by mellerssssssss on 2020/07/21 03:36
I keep watching videos to get more smoola, however, I’m not getting any smoola. Very annoying to only get to play the same songs over and over.
Amazing Game: Two Problems Though
by I♥️🎶 on 2020/07/21 00:41
I got this game when I started my piano lessons. I really liked it and it was a good reminder to practice my real piano. Now I’m really good on the real piano, and I’m good at Magic Piano too. I love how you can compose your own songs, I love the songs, I love the app. But there’s two little flaws that really annoy me. First of all, when I play the Daily Challenge, (which is really fun) I never even get close to the other people. Their always-and I mean always, at least two thousand points ahead of me. I really want to see that changed. The second thing is, I have a song in my songbook, and then the next week comes and it says it’s no longer in my songbook. What?! Other than those two flaws I love this game. Change those two things and this game would be the best.
My songs are GONE!
by Calove77 on 2020/07/20 23:45
I have collected many songs over the years that I “bought” by watching your videos and now a third of them are gone! They were there 3 months ago; what happened them? Also, I’ve been watching videos to “earn” Smoola and not getting anything! About done with this app!
Smoola problems and To many ads but Great.
by ...."................ on 2020/07/20 20:40
I downloaded this game on my iPad ,Every time I play a song and leave a song always a ad pops up and when I watch a ad I don’t get smoola. Well I do think this game has great songs and I can make my own songs. The vip is really stupid and my favorite songs is vip and half of the song book is vip ,this is’t fair.well I won’t spend money just to be vip.
Coins
by everest438 on 2020/07/20 16:15
Not good. I earned coins and buy songs but they disappear from wherever they are and I have to pay for them again. Also after watching a video for free coins I never get them. Overall the music is enjoyable.
Free smoola is a scam
by Toadette is me on 2020/07/20 01:47
Ok so like, I've tried to watch an ad for 5 free smoola, and it's just a scam and you guys get paid and we get scammed.

by Starscream probably on 2020/07/19 08:58
The game is overall great but the ads are just way too much it sticks and kind of makes me wanna deleted the game
when I try to get 5 smoola by watching an ad it doesn’t give me any
by TrajicToad on 2020/07/18 20:05
so? where is my smoola? i click free on 5 smoola by watching ad, and when the ad is done and I close it... I DO NOT SEE MY FRICKIN’ SMOOLA!!!!!!!!!!!! fix it. thank you.
No Smule for watching ads
by Kris~~~~~kris on 2020/07/18 18:16
I love this app and love playing songs, but everytime I watch the video ads for 5 free smule, it never gives me the coins. This makes it extremely hard to unlock new songs, and it’s a waste of time watching ads. If this bug was fixed, this app would be great!
Ads don’t work
by CJM0 on 2020/07/18 17:21
The game works great. Just one problem. Anytime I watch an add for five smoola it won’t give me the smoola. Please fix this. I would enjoy the app more if you did.
lot of problems
by HarryPotterFanatic0622 on 2020/07/18 17:17
i've had this app for years but what bugs me now is that whenever i want to get a new song, i have the option of watching an ad. so i do, because there's really no other better way to get money, but after i get done with the ad it gives me nothing, no matter how many ads i watch. also sometimes when i start to play a song, no sound comes out. my volume was all the way up, and not on silent. i reloaded the app and it did the same thing. this app used to be so much better.
Usually love this app
by Sumisumisumisumisum on 2020/07/18 07:44
I can’t update my profile picture without the app closing. I’ve tried turning/powering off/updating my iPhone but it doesn’t fix this issue.
More ads, no smoola
by yftcucucjffuxuc on 2020/07/17 05:21
I watched about 5 ads to get 5 smoola but every time I check my smoola amount, it still stays at the same number. And some of the ads are a bit scary. Like “Zombie war” is the only ad I see over and over again more than once. You can just call me Happy_Hungry.
4 stars but..
by iiGiulsii on 2020/07/16 21:58
It’s okay.. but the only thing I would change is the ad/ Smoola earning thing.. it’s just annoying.. I would watch videos to get the song I want and I wouldn’t earn ANYTHING. Please change that
Smoola
by cooorosh on 2020/07/16 15:26
I’m a musician and I love this game, but give more smoola , AT LEAST FIX videos for smoola option , I watch ads but it won’t give 5 smoola !! Please fix it
Smule if you ever see this please read!
by Msiklyen on 2020/07/16 03:05
I love this app so much it is my favorite game there is none like it and the music is so beautiful … I really hope you always keep this app in the AppStore… it makes me so happy to play it every day and it calms me down and it gives me good eye to hand coordination. I just wanted to say thank you so much for creating this app it’s genius I love it so much and I would be so devastated if it ever left the AppStore I hope kids can play this game after I die haha. I’m only so young now but it’s so amazing and it has helped me through so much and if I had the choice to play one game for the rest of my life it would be this one. Thank you Smule.…
Scam
by literly riged on 2020/07/15 23:17
Ive watched many videos and done quizzes and still haven't gotten my smula
Awesome game!
by Dancer 10000000 on 2020/07/15 22:14
I love this game so much! There is a flaw here and there but I was wondering when you delete the app does it delete you account? That all! Wonderful GAME!!!
Terrible coin problem
by Your Big Fat Mama Llama on 2020/07/14 23:26
Very fun game but the free video to get free coins never works and getting coins in general is way too hard and songs you like cost quite a bit kinda ruined the game for me 😕
Meh
by Ryfdtdhzhcfhd on 2020/07/14 17:54
What really bothers me about this app is that u put so mich time into making a piece and then people can copy it, change a single note, and repost it as their own.
Why is everyone so poor
by dragonboy395 on 2020/07/13 19:43
It is way too hard too get smoola. A whole bunch of levels is only one smoola. And when you try to get more nothing works. And there is a big ad problem. So I turn on airplane mode and I can’t play me favorite song because smule didn’t make it. And I cannot play the song I made.
Smile is a frat game but fixes have to be in place
by Supersonic1991 on 2020/07/13 14:41
Smile is a great game to play if you are ever feeling bored. Play some of your favorite songs to your heart’s content as you relive your favorite memories. The ad system does not reward you 5 smoola though, so that has to be fixed. All in all, it’s a fun app, so give it a try sometime.
Awful game. Only wants money.
by RMGRaccoonlol on 2020/07/13 10:25
I love this game, I’ve played it ever since roughly 9 years. Recently I got back into it with a free one week VIP trial. I loved playing over 300 classical pieces. Now that my trial is over, I cannot do anything. I can’t play a single song on the “my songs” list. I remember the VIP used to be $1.99 a week, and $3.99 a month. Now it’s $9.99 for ONE WEEK and $19.99 FOR ONE MONTH. That’s a 500% markup. There was no reason for it to be that high. The game without VIP offers nothing because every song costs smoola that is incredibly difficult to get. Awful game with greedy developers.
Good but some problems
by Tamyia08 on 2020/07/12 21:21
I’ve been playing this game fro a while now and I’ve been stuck on the same level! I always try and level up but I run out of free songs and it just takes way to long. So I suggest that they add more free songs for people to play and making it easier to level up.
Good but not amazing (AT ALL)
by MacLee2029 on 2020/07/12 17:03
When I first got the game I picked a song and have gotten Farley better but I was getting tired of all the same songs and adds my favorites were into the unknown and someone you loved but I was getting tired of them so I wanted new songs but almost all of them were VIP or cost smoola so I did not mind that.....(at first)so I went to get free smoola I watched an because because I don’t like spending money on games and I didn’t get anything so I tried it again to if it was a glitch and it still didn’t work...then after working so hard by leveling up and doing achievements I finally had enough to get a new song I was so exited so I surched my favorite song and it came up but....it sounded like CRAP!!!i was so sad because I spent so much time trying to level up and do that stuff just for nothing I would give more stars like a 3 but the add does not work it would make this review ALOT better than it it I highly would not recommend this app I mean I still have it just Incase of like an update or something where the add thing does work Sorry if this is just for nothing and it all doesn’t bother you and this was a wast of time But this is also for the developers to fix these problem Btw the song I got was 10,000 hours I think I might of picked the wrong one but you still need to title then differently so you can see what it is like the song a part of it etc Bye I hope you have a better time with this app if you do get it....
Won’t give you the Smoula (coins)
by Lalav19 on 2020/07/12 11:53
One of the options is to watch a video to earn smoula, the coins you need to buy additional songs. Even after watching the videos, you don’t earn them like it says you can. I tried restarting and then redownloading the app.
It doesn’t let you watch videos to get smoola
by Maegan Weinrich on 2020/07/11 23:49
I love this game so much, but when I had it on iPad, I could watch a video and get free coins. Now I play on my iPod and every time I watch a video to get coins, I don’t get any after watching the video. It’s really annoying.
Ok game but many issues
by KittyPuppyLover185 on 2020/07/11 12:09
Ok so the overall game I think is good it has a good concept but there are a lot of issues! First, when you play a song over 5 times, you can’t play it unless you buy the VIP pass! So basically you’re paying 520 dollars A YEAR to even play one level on this game! Second, whenever I press, ‘watch an ad for 5 free somoola’, I watch the whole ad but it never gives me the money!! It’s extremely frustrating! Third, the ads. They’re out of control! You get ads for like EVERYTHING!! I hope the developers read this because you need to fix your app! There are so many issues and it’s really frustrating!,
No free smoola?
by I don't like crashes on 2020/07/11 04:53
I watched at least six of the ads that gives 5 free smoola each, but didn’t receive any of it. I like this app and love the songs, but I can’t get more if the ads aren’t giving the smoola
Shameful!!
by chatnoiresque on 2020/07/11 02:51
Ruined a great game with excessive ads. And $10/week subscription to get rid of them? That’s insanely expensive for what you get. What a shame.
I use to like this game but.....
by giggggggggggztyjztjiuey on 2020/07/10 13:37
Yet i kinda just got sick of this game what would make it better is that make daily routines soooo ya do not no wat Else to write
Too many ads!
by en301 on 2020/07/09 22:51
Used to love this game back in middle school, and even if i ran out of songs to play i could easily get more by watching ads. Now several years later, there are more ads than ever, and the 5 coins per ad don’t even work anymore! Overall it’s still a good game, I really like the variety of songs we can pick and the ability to create our own; but if these issues were fixed, the game could be so much more enjoyable!
I hate it. It is impossible to cancel a subscription.
by tinselqt on 2020/07/08 21:34
I want to cancel my subscription but it is impossible
Nice app but to many ads.
by jfhdisevsjsvd on 2020/07/08 17:27
I played this game a lot every since I got it. But every time I’m done playing a song an ad pops up. It’s getting to the point where it’s really annoying to see fake ads advertising their apps.
Can’t earn coins
by Fhooudh on 2020/07/08 17:05
I have watched ads to earn 5 coins each and they never get added to my account. I should have 30 coins by now from watching those videos.
it used to be fun. :/
by wolfie😑 on 2020/07/08 13:34
i used to play this game a lot in 2018 and when i watched ads to get free smoola, it worked. but now when i try to watch ads for 5 smoola now, i get nothing. it doesn’t show up. so now it’s not fun to play anymore because i keep having to play the same songs over and over or watching a preview and fake playing it there. so please fix this because i won’t be playing this for a while if this doesn’t get fixed :/
The cost of this app has gone up over 400%
by Palo73$45 on 2020/07/08 03:29
I really enjoy this app but I can’t afford it! When I first downloaded it a few years back it cost $7.99 per month. Now you are charging $9.99 per week!!! That’s over a 400% increase, but the app is about the same as it was several years ago. As much as I enjoy the app, I feel The cost is WAY too high! And playing without the all access pass is extremely frustrating! If the cost had gone to $9.99 per month I would have given it 5 stars, but Not at this price! What are you-big pharma?
Great Music! Just One Problem...
by Luna Lovegood 3.0 on 2020/07/07 23:37
I love this game and I probably always will. The music is beautiful, and it’s so easy to play. I only have one complaint. THE REWARD SYSTEM. You only get one or two coins for leveling up once, and when you reach the higher levels, that can get VERY annoying. And, when I try to look into the ads and stuff for more coins, most of them never work! So in conclusion, great game, but it makes it kind of hard to actually UNLOCK the songs.

Smoola
by yfuvystdyxt on 2020/07/07 05:38
I really feel like smoola is pretty useless. I feel like if someone wanted to play a song to experience what it’ll sound like, they should be able to do it. Also when I tried to get smoola by watching an ad, it didn’t give me the smoola. I should have probably a hundred smoola by now.
fixer
by Mjtwag on 2020/07/06 17:47
ok this game is so much fun but what i don’t really like about this game is that every time you mess up i brings you down bc there is nothing helping you get better at the song or just the game but this game to me would be so much better if you made it where if you mess up it would encourage you to get better.
Not rewarding enough
by 2JorDEN6 on 2020/07/06 17:21
I have been using this app for years now, and I slowly started to realize that the rewards the game gives you is not enough, we have to constantly play the same 10 songs over and over again to get a reward of “1” or even “2” smoola. The prices for other songs could cost from 25 to 75 smoola.
It’s...It’s...
by ryanxia The best on 2020/07/06 03:59
It’s okay. I started 5 days ago, and I’m on level 5. I like it, but here’s some very important down-downs. 1. It’s a little boring because I don’t like tapping with all (or even some) of my hands (only 2 fingers and 1). I tap fast so I can just skip the levels. 2. Ads! Ads! Ads!!!!!! I hate them, and that’s why I gave it a 3 star rating. Can somebody erase the part of that we have to tap 3-4 fingers.
Okay but unnecessary notes
by HamiltonWolf on 2020/07/06 03:42
I got this app bc i don’t have a piano and i wanted to play music with guidance. and it gave me a free song as a reward, me being a Hamilfan, I chose Burn, there were unnecessary single notes placed that slowed me down and ruined the song for me. it helped bc i know the lyrics but pausing because the one notes were slowing me down threw me off course and i didn’t enjoy it. would recommend a real piano over this
All About $$$$

No sound
by Jackalope13 on 2020/07/05 21:12
Half the time sound doesn’t work for songs yet always does for the ads
Problem with Ads
by HappyStiches on 2020/07/05 08:46
I absolutely love this app but see now I’m slightly getting discombobulated in a sideways sort of way...I am not happy with all the ads and now I’ve watched 13 videos and I’m NOT getting my smoola and I hope this mishap will be fixed ... when it is I will gladly give a higher rating.update: well I used to absolutely love this game but now it has ads popping up constantly . It’s irritating and I’m thinking about just deleting the game all together if it doesn’t get fixed.

Glitches
by A Person who hates the app on 2020/07/04 05:48
This is not an app to learn the piano. Also the ads to get in game currency are bugged
Great, great game!
by lawandgrace1 on 2020/07/03 21:12
Honestly. I don’t see why anybody would hate this app, it has a cool piano playing technique, I like all the songs that they have, and I like how you can select a difficulty that you could practice on. When I first saw this app I was so excited to get it. I really got so good! I’ve been practicing everyday and got better and better. So yeah, a few mess-ups though, (I mean on my playing not the game 🤪😂) but I can see what everybody means.
Booooo
by Billybekah on 2020/07/03 16:53
I used to love it when my sisters let me play this game. But when I downloaded the app on my own phone, IT WONT LOAD it just shows the logo. I watched my sister playing it just fine but it STINKING WONT LOAD.
Ad glitch

No Smoola from videos
by Brian Orozco on 2020/07/03 00:34
I really like this app but now whenever I watch an ad that’s supposed to give me five Smoolas, I don’t get any. It worked before but for some reason not now. Please fix it!🙏🏼
Please read this before getting!!!!
by Gazoo03 on 2020/07/02 14:35
So, I have had Magic Piano for a little over a year, and there has never, EVER even been 1 update. Don’t get me wrong, the concept and how you play the game is great, but... it has many flaws. I’ll start by making a list. 1. The app will just randomly close out. I’ll be playing a song, and the app will just close and take me back to m home screen with all of my other apps! This is very annoying, and it ill not save your score or progress of it does that. I have since deleted the app because of my frustration with it. 2. If you would like to buy a song, then you need something called “Smoola.” These are what the coins are called in the app. It is extremely hard to get these coins, and you can only get 1 coin when you pass a level or get an “achievement.” 3. When you pass a level, you also get 1-3 new songs, but then to pass the rest of the level, you will need to replay the songs that you already have over and over again. This gets really annoying, because i downloaded the app for fun, and not to have to sign up as a VIP to unlock all of the songs. 4. One more thing about the songs and when you play them, there will most times be an add before you can enjoy playing the piano. Even if it’s a song that you already have in your library, that gets annoying, too. Personally, I would never really use the app ever again if these glitches and too many adds and not fun to play app never has an update again. They need to fix these issues ASAP, so that they will not detour people from getting this app
Fun but a few bugs
by Djkawaiicat on 2020/07/01 20:01
Hi, I’ve played the game for a few years now, but I recently got a new phone. If you watch an add it’s supposed to give you in game currency called smog, but when I watch an add, it glitches and I don’t get my smoola. Otherwise, it’s a pretty fun game, but don’t play for more than 15 minutes at a time, or else your wrist might cramp.
fix it
by Spikeybeans on 2020/06/30 20:01
girl yall gotta fix the smule thing cuz it said i would get 10 smules if i went on facebook and they gave me one. also based on other reviews they sound mad greedy tryna get ur $$ and if you dont pay them a lot of money then you get an ad every song. it used to be the hype but now its just like irrelevant whatever
This is fun but...
by jeffymc potato on 2020/06/30 19:44
So the game itself is really fun and I do highly suggest it but some songs cost smoola, the app currency. You can get some by watching ads. The only problem is that I’ll go to watch an ad and it won’t. Give. Me. Anything. I just waste my time for something I won’t get!😡 it’s really dumb and I want this fixed ASAP because I can’t get any smoola and the worst part is after watching so many ads it says “wait until tomorrow to watch more ads.” It sometimes does work but that’s very rare. I WANT THIS FIXED!😡😡😡😡😡
ADS
by sjsudjje$jdjejd on 2020/06/30 00:16
Whenever I watch ads to get smula it almost never actually works please fix and 5 stars will be given because this is actually a fun game that I enjoy
Everything Good Costs Smoola
by The Disney Geek on 2020/06/29 21:16
While I have enjoyed this game ever since I had an iPod in elementary school(I’m now 17), The one problem I have is that at this point, I’ve done all of the songs that are free, and I have barely any smoola. Even when I watch a video, I get only one extra smoola. But overall i love this app!
My song is gone
by lupe rosa on 2020/06/28 17:31
I bought the song Bohemian Rapsody for 25 smula and I did get to play it but then the next day I went on the app and the song was gone, I wasted 25 smula only for the song to be gone the next day. How disappointing
Pls fix
by Smg2181 on 2020/06/28 12:25
Every time I see an ad to get 5 Smoola it doesn’t give me anything.
Price Gouge

Needs fixing
by Ranky Doodle on 2020/06/27 01:59
When I watch ads, I did not get Smoolas. It worked before, but it stopped working. Please fix it. I have to abandon the game because of that reason. And worst of all, everytime you level up, you only earn 1 Smoola. Like, what is this? I did all of that hard work just to get 1 Smoola? That’s not enough. I’d say at least 10 Smoolas is enough.
Soooo frustrating
by a crazy cat lover🐱🦁 on 2020/06/26 21:30
Ok so I had this app when I was much younger and LOVED it. But as I got older I outgrew it and deleted it. I wanted to try playing a song on piano so I redownloaded it but all my progress that I spent years of working on was gone. It was a bit sad but I mean I did this to myself by deleting it. I only need 9 more smoola or whatever to play the song I wanted (the sole reason I redownloaded it!!!) and tried watching two ads to get 10. But of course it didn’t work. I don’t know why I thought the horrible ad system would’ve improved over the years. I guess this is why I deleted it. Wouldn’t recommend if your not into cheesy princess songs or nursery rhymes cuz it’s not like your getting anything else.
Smoola not working again

by 나는 복숭 아를 좋아해 on 2020/06/26 04:09
Ok this is good really good you should use it BUT the thing is every time you try to play a song an ad pops up literally it’s really annoying and also when you finish the song another app comes up all the ads that comes up are all GAME ads dude this is a piano playing app I know you want money to advertise something but please reduce them ADS
Fun but Smoola issues
by hsob37 on 2020/06/26 03:26
I love this game and it is fun, but it is extremely hard to get smoolas and all the songs are too expensive. The lowest price for a song is 25 Smoola, but when you level up you on,y get 1 Smoola, and it takes awhile to level up. I tried watching a bunch of ads to get five free Smoola per ad, but when I watched the ad, it didn’t give me any Smoola. I ended up watching five or six ads and I got nothing. Since it is so hard to get smoolas you end up playing the same songs and it gets boring... I really hope they fix this issue.
I liked the app
by Mac1812tanker on 2020/06/25 06:37
I really enjoyed the app and thought it was fun. The only downside is the smoola, it was easy enough to get it from the videos. However, the videos and the action things seemed to stop working for me. I watch a video and no longer receive the 5 smoola I complete actions and don’t receive the smoola. I was wondering if the developers had done something and would fix it soon but I haven’t seen any updates.
LOVE Composer Mode, but...
by Person 1231 on 2020/06/25 05:24
I have had this app for 9 years and have seen it go through many changes. Who remembers when the keys were all green and the upper right “side words” were all negative? Beside the point, composer mode is absolutely my favorite addition yet. I have been composing since 2016 and here is what I have to say: 1. There should be a “follow” system to support composers you like, 2. Composers should receive some amount of coins from the purchases or likes of their players, 3. And the note system on composer is a bit buggy (ie. Adding or subtracting bars removes two at a time, pressing many notes on the key itself sometimes adds two of the same note, and it is currently not possible to publish a composition with tags on it). Some if these issues are new, some have been there from the start. While these are just some suggested improvements, I cannot express with words how much I enjoy this game. It dispels all anxiety and I look forward to continue playing for years to come.
Lots of bugs
by 29105627 on 2020/06/23 22:08
This app is fun, but all the ads almost make it not worth it. Also earning smule is annoying because you watch all the videos and it doesn’t even give you the reward.
No smile when watch ad
by Lalalalalalllaa on 2020/06/23 17:33

Loving it, just one problem...
by iiStar_Strxckxx on 2019/07/05 17:00
Ok so I’m really loving this game, but there is just one problem that is just so annyoying. So I was just finishing up medium level on Colors by Halsey, and then I decided to try hard, so all was well the first few seconds, UNTIL... this popped up, “Why is magic piano paused?? Go to settings and turn off multitasking so your screen doesn’t slide off to another app! “ And so I went to setting and went to general, Like is showed in the picture, and I couldn’t find it! It wasn’t there! So I went back to magic piano to see the picture, and it was the exact thing I did! I couldn’t find “ MULTITASKING” So I just went back to the song, thinking it was just a one - time thing, and the NEXT TIME I press 4 finger it pops up again! It was so annoying! So I ignored it. And then a few peachy notes later it pops up again! Ughh it was so annoying! And so I finishing the song, and because of the pop up thing, I only got 2 stars!! But other than that, this game is awesome! Now I know that this review is just going to be one of the other reviews, lost in the ocean of reviews, but PLEEEEAAASE! Try to fix this.
Smoola and ad problems
by gamerwskills on 2019/08/11 19:28
I’ve had this app for at least 6 years and I loved playing it when I first downloaded it. I don’t really mind all the changes that made the app look different, but I’m having problems that I never had in the past. When I played this app on my iPad, I watched videos to get at least 75 smoola and it worked. Then recently when I started to do it again, it worked but then I would get ads that didn’t get me any smoola. When I first started having this problem, I thought that there might be a glitch in the app. So I tried to buy a song from the Songbook because I thought I would get the song I wanted even though I didn’t have the right amount of smoola. But when I tapped on the song to buy it, it said that I didn’t have the right amount even though I watched videos to earn smoola. Sometimes I would wait to get more smoola and then when I press the button to earn 5 smoola, it would say there I should come back later to watch more videos. Then I go to use another app to occupy myself. Then when I go back to the app, I would press the same button again, but then I would get an ad that doesn’t get me any smoola. I also wish that I wouldn’t have to watch videos after playing songs and I wouldn’t have to watch videos to play free songs even though I already played the song I want to play again.
I used to love it...
by @miggysbiggestfan on 2017/12/01 21:09
So I've had this app probably since I was 15 when I first got my iPhone 6, and it was addicting up until now. Okay so last night every single song I have showed 3 stars next to each level of difficulty that I have played at, and just a few minutes ago when I went to open the app, ALL of my songs showed no stars highlighted, no scores, no nothing. Like I just bought them or composed them and haven't even started playing them yet. I am really angry. 😡😡 Also there are just too many ads. 👎🏻 Every ten seconds after I finish a song, a stupid ad pops up about some coloring book or food game and it's really annoying. 😤 Also I really hate how the majority of everyone's favorite songs nowadays can't be played unless you have a VIP membership accessibility. It's ridiculous. I feel that VIP membership to play a song on Magic Piano should be banned, because you know, there are not very many VIP members in the world. I'm seriously thinking about deleting this app from my phone for permanent. I've not only had to deal with the troubles I stated above, but I've also had to deal with the app freezing up, songs I compose that won't let me publish no matter what I do, and Daily Challenge songs taking decades to load and then refreshing the app only for it to crash every time I reopen it. It's getting really frustrating and I can't take it any longer. 🚫
Not like I remember
by PennePastaCat on 2019/07/28 18:58
I had this app a couple years ago and absolutely loved it. It was challenging to play, since I only had a tiny device to play it on, but it was great. I actually felt like I was making progress with each song and difficulty I completed. I fell out of touch with the app in college and recently decided to redownload it because of how fun I remembered it being. I am disappointed with what Ive found. It feels like the only way to actually progress and earn coins for new songs is to spend money. It’s either that, or play the same few songs over and over again, making little progress each time. I could play a song on the hardest level without missing a single note, and still barely progress to higher levels. Not to mention the plethora of ads. I fully understand that when you play a game for free to expect a few ads here and there, but no other free app I’ve ever used has shoved so many ads in my face. I was able to tolerate it for a while, because the game itself is loads of fun, but my patience has worn out and I’ve deleted the app from my devices. It’s a shame because I absolutely adore the gameplay and ability to compose my own songs. I got this app to help relax when I have an idle moment between school and work, but it’s proven to be more stressful dealing with the above issues than it’s worth. It’s absolute waste of time, money, and effort.

I’ve downloaded this app on and off lately, for separate reasons. First of all, I hate all of these ads! I mean, sometimes every time you enter a different song, the same ad pops up. So on top of having to watch these stupid ads for different games, it’s the same one over and over and over. It’s so annoying that I’ve purposely turned off my Wi-Fi just to get rid of ads. It’s ridiculous! Second of all, I hate that the achievements give you only one or two coins! I mean, about eighty percent of the songs cost twenty five coins! And you work so hard on a single achievement to only get one coin? It’s stupid! Last but not least, there’s the case of this VIP stuff! I mean, half the songs in the entire app is in the VIP section! And almost all of my favorite songs are in the VIP section! It’s just not fair. Why should we spend our money on some stupid things like VIP memberships when eventually we’re gonna delete the game for all these reasons! Basically what this game- and all games in fact- is saying is that instead of using money to buy exciting things, we’re using it for an online item that isn’t real. It’s ridiculous, it’s stupid, and it’s a waste of money. Even though I somewhat enjoyed the game, all of these things are making my interests go down! Fix these things!
Went downhill
by lencofam on 2017/12/11 05:07
I used to have this app as a very young child, and the only reason why I deleted it was because I got frustrated at its difficulty. Just recently, the game crossed my mind and I decided to re-download it and give it another go. Because I’ve gotten a lot better at video games over the years, the difficulty of the game was no longer a problem. There, were, however, new problems with the game that I didn’t expect to encounter. For starters, the game has WAY to many ads. I can’t play a single song, not even a short one like Happy Birthday, without being forced to watch a stupid, boring video that I don’t care about. I got this game because I remembered how fun it was, but it’s kind of hard to have fun when 90% of the game is just you watching ads for other games. Second of all, this game is basically begging you for money at this point. The fact that some of the songs are only available to VIP users is just stupid. Do they really expect us to spend actual money on a stupid piano game that we have on our phones? Besides from that, every achievement you can accomplish in the game (leveling up, getting new songs, etc.) can be bought with just a few bucks. The fact that literally everything in this game has been put up for sale is terrible. Well, that’s my review
$mule.. it’s all about the $$$
by Samiam1023 on 2018/04/13 00:43
I loved this game for a long time but over the last year or more the ads are ridiculous and every time before you start a song .. there’s an ad.. finish a song... another ad... select another song.. an ad.. and on and on. I paid for a one week trial and didn’t realize it continued charging me. I originally signed up for 7.99 a month only to find out a couple months later they were billing me 2.99 a week! Being able to compose songs was a cool idea until I finished a level and earned 200 coins... purchased a newer song for 75 coins that was nothing more than a few taps and that was it. I didn’t get the song I paid for and that’s happened many of times. When someone submits a composure I think someone at the company should review it first before putting it out there for people to waste their money. Lastly... I have maxed out on levels so all the songs I rack points up on are of no use since the app is now not even giving me credit so unless I want to pay for VIP I have no way to earn what little reward you get for completing a level. What started out as my absolute favorite game is now nothing more than a money sucker and it doesn’t appear that it’ll improve. Great game gone to the deleted aps of my account! They aren’t getting anymore of my money!
Horrible ads!
by Mefens on 2017/12/06 13:51
I’ve always enjoyed playing magic piano. Over the years, I’ve had a membership and at other times did not. Currently, I don’t feel I play it enough to justify paying. With that being said, I have noticed some things that make this app not very enjoyable. 1. It takes FOREVER to earn smule coins. Which makes the app not much fun because I feel like I get to play the same songs over and over again. Not cool and not challenging. 2. Under “my songs” I have a bunch of songs which I have either bought or had while having a membership. At this point without clicking on each one there is no way to tell if I’m able to play it or if I need more smule. Confusing. 3. This is the most annoying of all. The ads that I see (which I do feel there are too many of) are not ones that I wish for my kids to see. There are ones that show a doll that is getting beat up and bloodied and tells you you “kick it’s a**” and that this will “relieve your stress”, really?! Not the message I want to send. There are others I have seen that are similar, zombies I believe, and there is a lot of blood. I don’t expect or desire to see these ads, ever, yet alone, over and over again. That needs to be changed or I will have to delete this once great app.
Very good, but some flaws.
by Trtplayer on 2019/02/24 17:46
Your game is very good and I honestly think it could be quite more famous. But there are some flaws... take the amount of ads for example... every time you finish a song, ad. Whenever you want to play a song in the free song list, and I quote,”your free content will be available after this message!” And then an ad. I feel like you just went a little overboard with the ads. And second of all MEMBERSHIPS. People already know that memberships are becoming a problem. They attract you into buying them, they give you a free trial, and they make it so almost everything is membership only. I counted that vip only song list in the menu. Over (drumroll please) 700 SONGS. You might wanna check how much you do to non-members. Finally, this isn’t too much of a complaint but just a thing to tell you. You’re age rating is 4+ right? Well.... Whenever I have to rack up smoola I watch ads and one of them has been catching my eye. You might wanna check your advertising because one of the ads legit has 18+ in the corner and the end of the ad even says,” adult game for adult emotions.” But so yeah just check your ads every so often and I feel like that this game could be much better
Fingers too big?
by Jen Reeves on 2017/09/25 23:10
So I've only had the app for a couple of hours and I signed up for the free seven day trial. I love the selection of songs, and I played a couple on easy mode and thought they were quite fun. But if I change the difficulty above easy, there are times when I'm asked to hit three notes at once. The two dots off to the right are so close together I can't hit them both at the same time. I put my two fingers together as tightly as possible and tap the screen and it's only registering that I'm hitting one of the dots. I don't have big hands, I'm a woman of average height and average weight so my fingers are not chubby or unusual in any way. I feel like I am missing something. Like there Nice to be an obvious solution then I'm just not noticing. Especially because I don't see anyone else complaining about this problem. Maybe there should be settings I can change to make the dots a little bit further apart so that my fingers can hit them, but I don't see anything like that anywhere. So I really like the song selection and I like the concept of the game and the sound is very nice, so I would give it a higher rating if I could actually Play it above easy. Until I figure out what's wrong and how to fix it this app is useless to me.
Love game but....
by Unicorn Magic 432 on 2019/06/27 03:43
This game is a perfect game for when you are bored or stressed and you just want to play the piano. I also love how you are able to make your own music on the app. There are a couple of problems in the problems in the game. The first issue is that the game glitches a lot sometimes and I have to shut my phone off a couple of times and that gets annoying. A second issue is that the game takes a while to load once you open it (the longest I ever waited was about 5-8 minutes). A third issue is that if you want to play a song you have to pay for it or use coins which you have to pay for or earn by watching ads (sometimes the ads don’t even load correctly so you can’t watch the video for coins).The songs are also expensive so it’s hard to get songs. A fourth reason is that when ever I click on something I the app there is add. Adds always pop up and one time one was inappropriate(a choices add that had sexual content).Also if you create a song you don’t get to be able to own it you have to pay for it!!! I understand you guys need to make money somehow but still!!!! I like the game but it needs some tweaks for the perfect fun experience.
WHAT THE HECK SMULE
by I'm a Artist on 2018/04/19 02:09
So I get you guys are a big app now, and I have had Magic Piano since it first came out, years ago. I used it when there was only basic songs like Twinkle Twinkle little Star. I’ve kept it all these years, and never have I gotten so many ads. I have over 150 songs, do you know how many Ads I had to watch? Plus free songs. I also did TapJoy stuff, and never once got my Smula (should be almost 6800 since I did ones you actually had to pay for also) I’ve reported it and then was told it was “Lost” but it said I had done it. Of course I got a little mad. Yet, I still have the app. How am I re-payed? ADS AFTER EVERY SONG! I like to play the songs but it’s annoying when a ad comes in every two seconds. As before I can play to ad after I play then repeat. It’s used to be reasonable, 1 ad after every 3-4 songs. Sometimes 5 if you watched a Smula ad. Don’t you guys already have Millions just from all of your apps combined? You guys are getting greedy. Also the VIP thing. Why are all the good songs VIP? The daily challenges used to be VIP songs, which was cool. But now it’s songs you can go and buy. Tired of it smule. I’ll keep the game and I wish to have my 6800 Smula, but I’m not going to force it. And PLEASE KEEP THE ADS ON A DOWN LOW!
Terrible
by tifpow on 2018/03/21 05:36
This app has gotten worse and worse. There is very rarely any free content created. I have a large library of songs that I accumulated when the app had a bigger variety of free songs, but even I get bored of playing those. So, does that mean I buy a VIP membership? Of course not! It’s super overpriced! To put it into perspective, a year of VIP is $40 which is about as much as a good quality Nintendo DS game. Not only does the Nintendo DS game have more to offer (offense intended) you also get to play it forever. It’s one payment of $40, not $40 a year like Magic Piano. Who in their right mind would buy a VIP subscription to Magic Piano? So, that’s off the table. I should just play the songs I have and get over it right? Or maybe save up smoola to get more. First of all, smoola takes forever to earn. I’ve been playing this game on and off for years and I got enough smoola to buy one song ONCE. Not to mention I had accumulated a lot of smoola at a point (probably over 100) and I opened the app one day and it was gone! The only reason I gave this app any stars at all is because if you’re playing one of the few decent songs you can, it’s really really fun. But it’s a terrible app that begs for money from us and lost what made it so great.
Good but some problems
by doglover828 on 2020/01/11 01:12
I love this game! I think it’s very creative the way they made you play the piano. I have never seen a game like this before it’s so unique! But there is always a but sooooo story time! So I was trying to get some more money ( I forgot the name of the money in the game) so I watched an add to get some money and I looked at where my money was and it stayed the same! But I thought it was a little glitch so I tried again and the same thing happened! I rebooted my iPad several times but it still never gave me more money. I got very frustrated with this problem. Please work on it. (or is it my iPad...) ok next problem ( I know too many problems and and it’s getting annoying but just stay with me PLEASE!) ok so the next thing that happened was I finally got enough money to get a new song. And I picked the song I wanted but then when I looked back at my songs it wasn’t there! Please work on that problem (or is it just my iPad again?!) ok so the point is GET THIS GAME I know I complained a lot but I would still get this game if I were you so yeah. PEACE OUT
Timing....too slow...???!
by lilpkrmnstr on 2018/04/30 04:47
I love this app, but the one thing I can't stand is when it tells me I'm being too slow.. but I'm trying to play the song the way it sounds.. And it always seems to want to rush me. I'd rather be able to play the song the way it feels in the way it sounds rather than having the app tell me I'm playing too slow. Messing up is one thing, but having a longer pause at the end of that set because you're playing it with feeling is another. I think that should be fixed. Make room for a real or with feeling pause. Also.. I LOVE the community section. However, I think people just messing around makes it hard to find the people who have actually created an amazing piece. That's frustrating. If you want the quality of the app, you pay for it. Have a passion for piano music, you pay for it. People who love it will pay for it. I would love to get rid of the “junk” on it... the songs people create that make no sense. They should have to be approved or something. Keep the crap out.
UUGGHH SO ANNOYING!! ADS?!?
by Pookeylookey on 2018/10/31 12:14
So many ads!! I know it helps the company, but there’s so much to were I get out of the game because of them. Don’t get me wrong, I love the game (kinda addicted) but I redownloaded the game the other day, and I don’t remember the game having so much ads. I mean cmon. I get on the app, ad, when I pick a song that I’ve already watched 40 million ads for, ANOTHER AD, and even when I get done playing a song..guess what, ANOTHER AD!!! cmon smule, where’s the game that I enjoyed without getting all these stupid ads. Plus, it’s like the same ads everyday. I’m okay with ads (because every game has them). Buttttt when they interrupt EVERY SINGLE TIME I PLAY, then I’m either gonna delete the game I love, or give y’all a review and hope y’all address and fix the problem. :) Yes, I understand y’all benefit from ads, but surely for how many people play yalls apps, and how many ads y’all have on a game in general, I think y’all are good on money. Please Please PlEaSe fix the PrObLeM!!!!! LOVE AND KIND, LAYTHEN!!! :) P.s- I love the game, and the games y’all produce. But, it’s basically all the stikin ads that I have to deal with just on this game. I hope y’all can fix this. Have a great day! :)
No longer worth my time; TRASH
by Niniroman on 2018/12/08 05:54
I never spend the time to review, however my disappointment in the evolution of this game pushed me to do so. I first played magic piano around 6-7 years ago and I absolutely loved it. There were plenty of accessible songs and I would earn a nice classical piece every time I leveled up. There were plenty of songs to choose from and I did not mind spending hard earned coins to gain popular songs like Mario’s theme song and Beethoven Sonatas. The amount of ads was reasonable and felt like an acceptable exchange for the playtime they provided. Now it is trash. As others have commented, there are ads before and after playing one song (most of the time). You get free songs for leveling up much less frequently and when you do they are not very desirable (I.e very short happy birthday). Even with all that ad watching, there are only 8 free songs, and most songs are for VIP members only. I loved this game for the classical music and there is barely access to any classical pieces for free anymore. I am extremely disappointed with the direction of this company. I do not recommend their products. And hope others will take notice and do the same. I hope they change for the better after seeing the many complaints here.
In Game Currency
by bubblez110123 on 2019/09/13 01:01
Ive had this game for about 5 years. I have had 3 accounts and all has been good. Though, i wouldn’t recommend you download this app. Here are a few reasons why. 1)you cant watch adds to get in game currency to buy new songs, but the past 2 years if you get an add that has a demo at the end ( and if the x isnt tinted grey ) you wont get your currency. I kid you not i watched 20 mins of adds and got 5 (= 1 add) its bs. 2) the game feels rather single player even though its an online game. While yes you can play other peoples songs ( and their copies) you cant do anything else. It would be nice to at least have a comments section. 3) copies are on about every song. And they do absolutely nothing about it. Now the copies of their 75 smoola ( igc ) songs are completely fine by me! But the countless copies of one persons hard work is ridiculous. The one person who tapped their screen for hours get no credit because there isn't even a way to find the original creator. Overall this game is a money scheme. They want your money so you can progress and you unlock new songs to progress. But at least its a reasonably fun money scheme!
AD AND BUG/GLITCH INFESTED APP!!
by Alcrex0260 on 2017/11/15 03:31
Used to like the game but maybe if they added an instant replay feature pianist can see where they might have messed up, and also there’s a bug or glitch that makes the songs I purchased with smolda coins via search, the only songs that show up in the “my songs” section is the songs that the app created. It’s really annoying when I can’t play the songs I spent a long time watching ads to get. And also sometimes I sit through a 30-50 second ad and I don’t even get the coins for it, um..... WHATTTTT?!?!?!? I used to really like this game. I played it for hours without any ads and it was fun and enjoyable and all bugs were squashed, but now we have ads around every corner, bug nests everywhere and ads with sexual content, um excuse me but (no offense intended to Smule) who do you think you are?! It’s an app rated 4+ so there should be content that’s appropriate for 4+ aged people. UNACCEPTABLE!! How would you feel, developers of Smule, if your child was playing an app and encounters an ad containing sexual content? I would feel like a bad parent! And if more and more people feel the app makes them feel like bad parents, they’ll delete the app and you’ll loose money! Then what will you do? Just think about that.
The glitch😤
by I❤️EDM on 2018/06/23 19:57
Overall I think this app is fun and I like that there’s a ton of songs to choose from. But I’m writing this review because of one problem in particular I’m having. When I play on the hard level, (using up to four fingers) often for some unknown reason it will keep pausing even though I do NOT hit the pause button. This happens a lot now (sometimes ten times a song...no exaggeration!) Also it’s started to glitch out right into other apps when I’m right in the middle of a song. It’s getting very annoying. Please fix this! (A month later) Something just popped up on my screen on how to make it stop pausing right in the middle so many times of every song. I did it and it worked. Thanks! I’ll bump it up to four stars now. I’d have a better chance of giving it five stars if there weren’t soooo many ads (An ad after every song you play and sometimes you’re required to watch an ad before you can even begin playing a song) and if the songs didn’t cost so much.
Major Problem (developers please fix)
by pink whale dolphin on 2019/06/12 14:07
At first I really loved this game but lately I have been having a huge problem with it. If you own this game and only have a few songs you won’t see this problem as much but I own around 20 songs. Not all of the songs I have bought, won, or chosen from “free songs” show up in “my songs” many of them are still in free songs and some of them don’t show up anywhere. Now that is a problem but wait there is an even bigger one. Some times a song that I own doesn’t show up in “my songs” or in “free songs” it shows up in “suggested songs” or in “editor’s choice” (even when I search my songs this happens) it says I own it and the stars are even fulled in. Well I go to click on it because obviously I have payed for that song and I want to play it but it says that I am blank many smoolas short like I have to buy it again. WHAT? I ALREADY PAYED FOR IT ONCE I HAVE TO PAY FOR IT AGAIN? This is really frustrating. If it wasn’t for this major problem I would give this app five or four stars if it didn’t have this problem, it is really fun and I love playing the songs. But please fix this major problem I want my songs back.
Disappointing
by uwu 4 u on 2019/01/13 04:55
Ideally this would be a great app. It was fun for a bit but there is really not that much you can do without spending money. Smoola, their currency, is soooo hard to obtain. There are these achievements you can get but after the first few easy ones you realize that the rest are impossible to get. You have to play more songs to get the achievements that get you smoola, but to be able to play those songs you have to buy them with smoola. Either way you need smoola and the only way to get it is to buy it with real money. There are tons of ads just to play song that last only one or two minutes. Whenever I saved up enough smoola ( a rare occurrence) I was so happy because that means I could get a song. So over the course of the few years that I have had this app, I have been able to buy ONLY FOUR SONGS! (I don't use this app that often, maybe once a week or a bit more). I also wish there was a way to preview the songs before you buy them. For two out of my four purchased songs, I have been disappointed with the way they sound. This app would be so much better if you didn't have to spend so much money to enjoy it.
Really?
by g-c-hoo on 2020/06/20 18:13
This used to be a great app. But now all sorts of problems have surfaced. The first one is a terrible glitch that ruins the whole game. I am currently trying to earn achievements to earn smoola. The one I’m doing right now is play ten songs perfectly. I keep trying to play songs, but as I am tapping the screen, say on the right side, it will say I’m also tapping on the left and will say that I’m tapping with too many fingers! This makes it impossible to complete the achievement. The second one is how hard it is to earn smoola. To earn them you either have to level up, or earn an achievement. It is extremely hard to level up and as I said before that glitch makes it very hard to earn achievements. The reason it is hard to level up is that it barely gives you any xp after you finish a song. You need about 10,000 xp to level up where I’m at. But when you finish a song that lasts longer than three minutes it only gives you 300 xp.
Great Game... but also some honesty
by lSIRsmokeALOTl on 2018/03/02 20:42
Alright, so I would like to start by stating that I absolutely love this game as a game, but I've come across some shady business practices from Smule considering their billing agreement. I did the one week trial, loved it and then paid for another. I decided I needed to not pay for the subscription for personal finance reasons, so I canceled my VIP membership. Low and behold they charged me for VIP the next week, so I removed PayPal from my payment methods on iTunes. Funny thing is, even after cancelling the subscription and removing PayPal as a payment method they continued to charge me for four more consecutive weeks. I had to claim fraudulent charges through my bank to get the payments to stop. I'm not sure if this was a mistake or shady business practices, but make sure you manually stop the recurring charges through your bank if you want to stop the VIP membership. That is honestly the only reason I gave this game three stars. If not for that singular incident I would definitely have rated it 5 stars. Great game! Love it! But I'm going to be uninstalling it after my experience.
Scam
by Cchhoollee on 2018/07/19 03:07
I used to love this app, but now it’s just disappointing. I opened the app for the first time in about a year yesterday, and all of the thirty something songs I had ever purchased and played were gone. Even a song that I bought last night was gone by this morning. It’s pretty much impossible to get coins without purchasing them with real money, and I wasn’t going to spend that much time watching ads. Another horrible change that I’ve noticed is the increase in ads. A year ago, all of the songs in the free section used to actually be free. But now, you have to watch an ad before playing one. Even if you want to change the difficulty, you have to watch an ad. Ads never used to be apparent in the app unless you watched them for coins, but now they pop up after you play almost any song, even if you have actually purchased it. After reading a lot of reviews, I am positive that everything that is happening to me is not a unique glitch, and is probably a scam put into place by Smule so they can earn more money. Don’t waste your time trying to make good use of this app. It’s not worth it. There are plenty of other much better versions out there.
So. Many. Freaking. Ads.
by LittleNerdyElephant on 2018/01/11 01:03
Ugh, BEFORE and AFTER I play a song, I have to watch an ad. I can’t X out of it, because then I just close out of the app and lose my progress, and end up repeating what I tried and failed to do before. I give it three stars, mainly because it is a great app overall, with fun songs and options, xp points after every song you play that you save to level up, rewards, etc. I think it would be such a better game if there weren’t as many advertisements! Also, almost everything is too pricey. It is hard to get through the game without purchasing something. There are only eight free songs I know of, without being a VIP, and once you complete those, you kinda have to just replay them until you level up and get more smoola to buy a song. I think this game has potential, but please add in more free songs and lower the amount of ads I see, because honestly it is super annoying, and I want to delete it but I would lose all my progress. If you make these simple changes, my star rating will go up, and I guarantee others will too.
Time for a change!
by On the second day on 2017/08/10 18:03
I've had Smule for about three years now and have noticed major changes in the downward direction, sometimes I ask myself why do I still play....why because it is fun after you get through the extremely loud commercials. Some commercials can last as long as 30 seconds and they are now using commercials with sexual orientation and I heard the F word this week on a new commercial. I hope Smule doesn't think only adults use this app because I know several minors that use this. Usually you have to listen to two commercials before playing a song which is tiresome. As for the new composers feature I personally do not care for it because all it does is make about 20 songs of the same song and when you finally get a free song it'll give you a duplicated song that you already have, just made by someone else. it takes a long time sometimes to get a free song even when it asks you would you like a free song today?... and then they don't give you one! I will not pay an annual membership to play this game. Smule needs to get it together and make this app fun for everyone.
Isn’t worth it if you don’t pay VIP
by tessmelane on 2019/11/01 06:24
I’ve used this app since 2012 and it’s definitely changed over the years. Before there were no adds and it was easier to gain Smoola. Now it’s really not worth playing if you aren’t going to pay for it, there is an INSANE amount of adds, and saving up money takes a while so it’s hard to get songs, at least the ones that aren’t VIP only anyways. I pay for the app and honestly it’s not that horrible in price if you’re going to actually spend time with it. There’s no adds and you can basically play whatever you want. I like that you can add whatever songs or search for literally anything from others who have added songs. For some reason or another (probably the lack of the plague of adds) the VIP version runs super smoothly in comparison and I haven’t experienced any glitching, which honestly surprises me. Basically, if you don’t want to pay for it save yourself the frustration. If you do, it’s a great app.
This is my favorite game in the whole world
by Wifey290 on 2018/01/13 08:16

No longer any good
by Lvsdolls on 2019/06/24 01:46
I played this app when it was first available. I loved it! There were a few ads plus you could earn Smula by watching an ad. It was reasonable. Now! You have to watch an ad before and after the few free songs available AND the songs that are mine, that I bought, now have an ad after playing but before u get your points. If you don’t watch the ad you lose your points. Earning Smula is insane! The number of ads involved just to get points towards a level that when complete gives you 1 Smula. Any song to buy is 25 Smula (to put it in perspective). I don’t recommend this game or any games thru this company. They are greedy and underhanded. They used to be one of my favorite and trusted companies. I hope this company realizes that no one is going to pay u for ads if u have no one playing your games. You seriously need to revamp how your doing your games before your greed puts you out of business!!! It’s not like there’s no competition with other similar games!! DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS GAME. Be prepared to spend 90% of your time watching ads if you try out this game. The single star I gave is a tribute for the way this game used to be.
Im so bitter
by Ɩıŋɖʂɛყ on 2018/08/02 04:03
I’m so incredibly disappointed in this app. I used to have it a long time ago and I loved it SO MUCH. it was so soothing and I would play it every night before I went to sleep. But that was on my old iPad, and now it’s incompatible with the app. I had never played it with my phone cause I thought the screen would be too play to play properly (I was right), so I never got it. Then I saw an ad for it and I thought “that would be fun to try again!” WRONG. I’m so mad. The first thing it’s greets me with is “you wanna but a membership that’s way overpriced?”. Then after that I tried to play a song and was bombarded with SO MANY ADS!! Also, I tried to play a song from the little mermaid that had the voice along with it, and it WAS NOT synced up at all!! I used to play the ones with the voice all the time, so I know how it works. I wasn’t doing it wrong. When did this app become such a sell out?!? Literally like 3/4th of the app is all ads. It’s completely ridiculous. I’m so disappointed and frustrated. I just wanted that soothing experience again. Listen Smule, you don’t need all this crap to sell your app. You’re just making people mad. Please give up back what we want.

Alright, so I remembered this app from when I was about 3 years old. My brother had it on his tablet, so I would always ask to play it. Hey, at least back then it was good! But now it’s gone REALLY down hill. There’s an ad every time I finish a song. Then when I go to play a different song, there’s another ad! It’s super annoying when I go to play songs! Also, there is a glitch. When I go to get free Smoola by watching an ad, it doesn’t make the count go up! If there’s a demo after the ad it doesn’t go up, but if there is no demo it will go up. So I basically waste 5 minutes trying to get some more Smoola by watching ads. So maybe try to get the ads WITHOUT demos. Because every single ad I get, there’s always a demo. That’s fine after playing a song, but not when I get free Smoola. It’s really annoying wasting my time which I could spend on better things watching ads. So try to fix this glitch please! Other than that, it’s still kinda good. You can still get songs, and I love composing my own songs, so it’s kinda good. Thank you for reading.
Helpful ideas!!!!
by JHONOSAURUS REX on 2018/05/16 01:29
I think that this is a very fun and creative app, but only when people stop copying the same song from each other. The sad thing is that they aren’t even the right song. For example, I wanted to play the song “Every time we Touch” by cascada and when I search it up, I see that all of the songs say cascada on them. But when I listen to them, they aren’t even remotely close to the actual song. I would love it if you could add something to prevent that since it is very annoying. Aside from that, I think it would be a good idea for you to add a function that allows you to transpose songs that you have downloaded on iTunes for the piano. So basically, if I have a song on iTunes that isn’t on the app, I could select the function and it would transpose itself to match the app. I think that it would be a good idea, and I think that it will make the app more enjoyable. Overall, it is a very fun app and I would like to see more happen with it. Thank you!
Too many Ads now! Poor song selection
by Ashlish on 2017/10/16 04:12
I'm finally irritated enough to write this review. This use to be my favorite app, hands down. So fun and included challenges and current music. However, now there are so many ad disruptions. Playing a new tune, first an ad....playing a song you have already paid for, first an ad.... playing a free song made by another user, first an ad. It's ridiculous. Now, I barely play it, unless I have time and patience to sit through five ads in less than ten minutes. Total sell out move, btw Smule. I wouldn't mind buying it, but a monthly fee is charged with an auto subscription, or you have to sign up for a slippery trial offer. Not a good deal. Also, there use to be new songs made by Smule that were free. Now, it's the same songs over and over made by different users-Chasing Cars, Gravity Falls Theme, Hokage's Death, Hallelujah, What a Wonderful World.....seriously! It's been those songs for at least a year now. Change it up a bit and I don't mean different Smule user composers. That comes off pretty cheap and makes me wonder what I would get from allowing you to charge my card every month if I signed up.
There are things that need to be improved
by MinecraftMermaids👍 on 2018/11/25 20:54
I really do like the game a lot, which may seem weird considering my 3-star rating. It’s just there are a few things about this game that make it less enjoyable. One: how hard it is to make Smoola. Honestly I’ve just given up on leveling entirely because I’m only getting 1 smoola every time I level up! You may say that you’re making up for it by giving us songs when we level up instead of Smoola, but I’m sorry, not all of us WANT to play classic songs. It was much better when you got 25 Smoola for leveling up, because it felt more rewarding and we could actually get the songs we want. Two: WAYYYYYY too many ads. I don’t want to see an ad every time I finish playing a song. I’ve actually had to find ways to avoid getting the ads just so I don’t have to watch them, but then I don’t get the XP for the song I just played. Maybe you should just leave the ads in the get more Smoola area. Three (and this is the biggest one in my opinion): The fact that it pauses any time I press the screen with four fingers. Ok, it makes sense that the pause screen would be sensitive if I push hard on the screen, but it’s doing it almost every single time I use four fingers, making it almost IMPOSSIBLE to play certain songs and enjoy them because it’s pausing every two seconds. Maybe you should make it so that the pause screen isn’t so sensitive to touch and there’s just an actual button to pause it, because this is getting really annoying.
It is okay, BUT could be better!!!
by Twinkies5everrr on 2018/02/16 05:58
I believe that Magic Piano is a good app. It is fun and creative.., and I really like the fact that people have the opportunity to compose songs ^-^... however, there are some huge problems about this app -.-... To begin with, there are SERIOUSLY WAYYYYY too many advertisements. (No exaggeration) There is an ad EVERY single time I finish a song. Also, when I select a free song (Or even one of mY songs!¡!) to play, an ad/video pops up. I think this is very annoying and makes me a lottt less interested to play the game. Another problem is that since a lot of the songs are not free, it is really hard to buy songs when you barely have any smoolas. It is so hard to get smoolas because (i don't know if this is just me) every time i complete those free offers to get smoolas, it NEVER works. Back in the olden days where the compose magic piano update was long gone, the offers would actually work and reward me... Magic Piano was not that bad a while ago, but now, its progress is going downhill :(
Amazing but a few cons
by 🐱Graystripe🐱 on 2019/12/24 16:29
Magic piano is amazing! I love to play it everyday and compose new songs. Considering I play the piano in real life, magic piano Is so much like that. But, there are a few cons for this game that should be fixed. 1) It’s so hard to get smoolas. Every song is at least 25 or 75 smoolas. Every time you level up, you always get one. 2) I love to compose song, but the problem is that once it is composed and published, you can’t play it anymore. You would need to spend 25 smoolas if you would want to. For your OWN SONG. 3) You can always listen to the song before playing it, but the problem is that you can’t listen to the whole song. So thanks to that, I spend 25 smoola on a song that WASN’T EVEN FINISHED! Besides all of this, it is fun 4) As a pianist, I actually enjoy this app, but what I don’t like is that every note is a quarter note. That is why some song don’t sound correct. Most song have half notes, eighth notes, whole notes, dotted half notes, and so on. So can you PLEASE fix that. 5) it’s hard to keep your songs. There was this song that was given to me as a gift when I first joined Magic Piano, and now it wants me to pay for its access. I should have kept it, but nooo, now they took it away from me. There is this other song I was given free, and now they took the access away from it too Please fix these if you can. Also, keep up the good work.
Not Sure What to Think
by BlitzyWolf on 2019/01/21 02:29
I grew up playing this and thought it was amazing. However, after deleting it after a few years and deciding to revisit a childhood memory...it most certainly disappointed me. The constant ads drive me insane whenever I play various songs of a relatively short duration. Not only that, but being able to afford the songs I wish to play is just depressing to look at without the means of spending money. Although I understand there must be ads and a reason to become a VIP to earn money, I don’t see a purpose strong enough to convince me to spend a penny on this app. On a different note, I’ve played this on my iPad and have found it exceedingly frustrating to attempt playing songs on a hard difficulty due to the four finger taps available during them, because it pauses the song and brings up a menu from the bottom about half of the times I try to play the four finger notes. I’m unsure why a pausing mechanic like that was implemented into the game due to inconvenience and how unnecessary it is. So, I highly doubt that I will return to using this app unless some of its serious issues are properly addressed.
Great app, but..
by Gohrikat on 2020/04/14 21:01
This app is truly amazing! So much fun and occupying, very easy and fun, and there are so many different songs to play. However, I sincerely wish that we did not have to watch so many ads. It gets annoying very fast, and it makes me not want to play. Another problem I have with this game is that you have to pay a lot of smoola for just one song. The songs get up to 75 smoola currently, and to get free smoola, you need to do things that some people can’t actually do. For example, you can connect to Facebook, which some people are unable to do because they don’t have Facebook. And there are a lot of children playing this game as well that are not allowed to have certain social media. Another thing is you can watch a 23 second ad for just 5 smoola. Its not very fun when all you can do at one point is watch ads for smoola and play all the free songs. (Which, in my opinion, are ever very fun.) This app would be absolutely amazing if we could do some easier things to get smoola.
Good game...needs improvement
by mashingpotatoV22 on 2019/06/16 16:28
I have been playing smule piano for a long time on and off, and I have realize the pros and cons of the game. Here are the pros... PROS: 1. Good music selection 2. Different piano sounds 3. Daily challenges + rewards For the most part smule has done a good job creating music and allowing others to do so too, but here are the cons..... CONS: 1. When let’s say you have an account and make a song inspired by another person’s song, you should be allowed to play it without having to buy it with smule coins, which brings me to the next con 2. There should be more opportunities to get smule coins then leveling up (which only gives you like 2 coins). When there are songs that cost 25 coins each, you should have more options to get coins than just watching the same video over and over again for 5 coins 3. Sometimes when I get in to the app (on iPhone and iPad) it just stops at the smule logo and I have to tap out and try it again. 4. And finally, when playing on an iPhone, it is sometimes hard to keep up on the singing piano mode because the 4 notes are hard to press. This meet mean I’m not the best digital piano player but I think amateur will understand Overall smule piano is a great game but it needs some improvements. And know that it was hard for me to come up with pros. And one last thing, can smule please change the singing on the ads for smule singing because man, they are so out of tune.😒🙏🏻
It’s great!!! But...
by Heggru on 2018/09/03 22:51
This is by far my favorite app of all time! But... it’s got a one thing that isn’t so great. when ever I try to watch an video to get more smoola, it lets me watch it but then doesn’t give me the smoola and I’ve tried over and over again but it still won’t work!!! And when ever I get free songs it says that I need to pay for them even after it lets me play them!!! And sooooo many of my favorite songs need VIP access and I don’t have the money for something a stupid as a couple of songs on an app!!! But I still love this app even when it kills me off of it repeatedly and sometimes forces me to delete it along with all the songs I’ve payed for!!! And don’t even get me stated on the freaking billions of ads!!!! They suckkkkk!!! And almost every time I mess up it either doesn’t say anything or says something completely different then what I did and I know what I did but it’s kinda annoying to have it not tell me.
Not worth the time
by Hunter(Soda_Pressed) on 2019/07/14 18:31
It’s pretty fun, and I don’t really mind the excessive amount of ads, I know you need to get money somehow. But my complaints are that first of all, there is very few chances to earn Smoola (or Smula, or however it’s spelled). I don’t feel like signing up for some subscription to pay for an app on my iPod, so if I want to get a new song I have to use the in-game currency. It’s extremely hard to just accumulate the currency over time, so I tried watching the ads to get 5 more Smoola, but nothing happened and I didn’t receive any money. I watched an ad, and the number of Smula I already had showed a loading sign, but then disappeared and I still had the same amount I did before. Usually I wouldn’t really care, after all, it’s just a game and I doesn’t really matter. But I really wanted to play this one song, and besides, I watch so many ads all the time, that if i got 5 Smula every time I watched one, I’d be rolling in cash. Another issue is how half the songs are only for VIPs. Again, I’m not going to pay real money just to play a song I already know how to play on a real piano. But of course, you don’t really read the reviews at all, do you? Dozens of people like me have the same complaints, and you haven’t changed a single thing. I’m wasting my time. Sorry for it being so long. Those are my thoughts. I say don’t get this app if you’re going to take it seriously. If you just want some relaxation, this is fine. Hunter
Sort of amazing.!
by iab524 on 2019/12/26 16:45
So this game is so FUN! It’s so addicting. But I have to list a few problems. 1. When I compose a song, (I made jingle bells) I have to pay smoola for my own song? I wanted to play it, for free. It’s confusing. Would the smoola go to me? Or will it go to a random player? Or will it go to you? My brain is confused. Also, I payed for the jingle bells once, and I have to pay again. And, smoola is hard to get. You should get 5-10 smoola each level up. 2. I have to watch an ad for every song I play. Okay, I get that you need someway to make money, but I play a lot of 30 sec to 20 songs and then I get a one minute ad? At least have the duration of the ad shorter or about the same length of the song. (This is my opinion, and I get it and I’m okay with if you can’t change the ads.) 3. The levels. It takes too long for you to level up. I really want to level up to get the classic guitar, it is relaxing, but I don’t want to pay like 495 smoola to get it. Also, it is the same for the Vocal Choir. It is so funny but I don't want to pay 495 smoola. Who has that much, anyway? (Not meant to be rude) I only have 17, haha! Like I said, this app is amazing. Please tale this as constructive criticism to make your app better. Sorry if this was offensive to you guys in any way. Thank you for making this app! Have a good day. Iab signing out!
Used to be great
by Pyrowo1f on 2018/03/20 20:53
This app used to be a lot of fun. I used to play it every day. Since then, I moved on, but I remembered the app and came back. It’s taken a turn for the worst now. You used to have an ad-free experience even as a free user. You could still watch ads to get the in-app currency, Smoola, so you could buy songs. I did this almost religiously day by day. You can still do this, too. However, now you also get an ad after every. Single. Song. And that’s assuming you own the song. If you don’t, you’ll need to watch an ad before you play the song, too. The composer feature is incredible, and the user created songs are wonderful. The fact that they only cost 25 Smoola a piece is awesome. The ability to share your performances with friends, family, and the world (through the in-app “World” feature and the Smule website) is cool, too. But the entire experience is completely ruined by the prevalence and disruptiveness of the endless ads. Unless, of course, you pay the subscription fee on a monthly, three month, or annual basis.
It’s amazing a few fixes tho
by five stars girls on 2019/04/08 15:37
This game is absolutely amazing I love all of the songs they are difficult I like that.... But it could use a few fixes like it does freeze a lot that is a little bit annoying if you guys could fix that that would make my day also about the memberships why do all of every ones favorite song require a membership I am a little disappointed about that but it’s is still an amazing app a few another thing why is there so many pop ups after every song you have to either watch a video or see another pop up it is very annoying if you guys could fix it that would be great this app needs a few fixes but that’s ok because I still rated it 5 stars it is an amazing app I love it is addicting, fun, challenging, and I absolutely love it thanks for making this game such a successful game for every one😎😁😊🥳🤩
AWESOME! Get it! its worth it!
by WaterAirFireEarth on 2018/07/13 02:05
Okay so i have probably had this app for like three years or something and i just recently came back to it and fell in love with it. and theres all these bad reviews like “ Oh theres too many adds” or “They all cost coins to get them!” Witch is bull because all games have adds try to think of one game on you're phone or iPad right now that doesn't have adds? Yeah you couldn't think of any could you. and its not like theres That many either. and for the people who say “oh well most of the songs cost coins!” Seriously? Theres a get more coins section and all you have to do is watch an add and u get enough coins for you're new song there. all i'm trying to say is this a great app and anyone who is thinking about getting it get it! because theres no hurt in giving it a try and if u don't like it then just delete it.
This app has gone downhill.
by Pinapplesonpizza on 2018/08/21 06:09
I used to thoroughly enjoy this app, but it has become consistently worse as time has gone on. There used to be occasional ads, which are understandable, as you do have to make money, but now there are ads before and after almost every song. In similar fashion, you used to be able to play your songs offline, however now, to foster more advertising, no doubt, you must be online to play. Songs you purchase also have developed a nasty tendency of disappearing from one’s list of songs, and are still playable without purchase if you search for them, however this is annoying when you just wish to scroll through yours songs and play one, and it disappeared without your knowing. There was a time I’d have rated this app 5 stars, but due to increasing problems that add up, I’m giving it 2. I’m going to keep it downloaded in case updates fix any of these problems, but for now I’m going to stop playing, so they don’t get advertising money that I don’t think they deserve off of me.
Some magic in magic piano smule
by sophieshopkins😊 on 2018/06/24 01:49
I used to not like this game at all. I was thinking about deleting the app last time I played, but when I played it again, some things changed. There is actually some songs I like that are free, but ads. When you click on a song to play, it says your free content will be available after this ad, and it’s really annoying. I’ve gotten used to it, but I feel like they should get rid of that. Tons of people are tired of ads on games, and maybe magic piano smule can get rid of the ads on this game. That would totally bring back a lot of people. I 85% of me thought it was a good idea to delete this app, but I’m lowering it to a 40% now because I’m kinda impressed. Also, it’s kind of cool how there’s a ton of options other than ads to get free smoola. And I like that it’s only 25 smoola for songs I like instead of like 50. But on the other hand, you don’t get much smoola at all when you level up. They should give you 5 smoola, not like two! I’ll give it one more stars than I did before.
This is not fair
by Frankiew0415060 on 2017/09/23 14:25
Ok so my 6 year old brother had my phone and he knows everything about it so he added his finger print to the phone and I had the Touch ID for my Apple ID and I found out I was getting these charges I didn’t know what they were at first but then I checked it out and saw charges from magic piano I haven’t even played this game in like 2 months so when I saw I got charges I thought that it was a mistake but I called my card and they told me that about a month ago I applied for a subscription on the app magic piano like I said I haven’t played this game I’m forever the only person that played it was my little brother and since he had my finger print he purchased the subscription and no one knew he might’ve thought it was free because when the purchase screen shows up it says free trial key word free so my brother saw that and pressed the button he saw the fingerprint sign and but his finger this is not fair at all we didn’t even know we were being charged and we weren’t even playing the game this is really unfair and I will never download this game again
